Acting on a no-win-no-fee basis, Curzon Green recently secured a significant settlement for their client who suffered serious Category 4 pressure sores following a stay in hospital which in turn had led to greatly reduced mobility. The case involved complex arguments relating to causation which required a number of expert reports to be obtained and analysed. Careful consideration was also given to quantum as the client had substantial future care needs to be met by both private care workers and family members. The case was successfully settled through a formal mediation, with the client due to receive £90,000 in damages, plus his legal fees.

Our Immigration & Human Rights team were recently successful in bringing a claim for damages against the Home Office for wrongfully imprisoning someone for many months. Damages of just over £20,000 were recovered and we acted on a no win, no fee basis.
Our summer party was a success yesterday. Much fun was had by all and the rain-gods were kind to us. We're starting to plan for the 2021 summer party....
We are very pleased that Imogen Kelly has accepted a training contract offer with us scheduled to begin in 2022. Imogen has worked in our offices over the summer as a legal assistant and is due to return to university soon to complete the final year of her law degree.
Jessica Bass and Jessie Mark acted for a minority shareholder in bringing an unfair prejudice petition in the Companies Court of the High Court against the majority shareholders. It was thought that the Respondents were diverting the business away to a competing company, to drive down the share value at the expense of the Petitioner, and there had been a number of failings under the Companies Act 2006, including a failure to disclose accounts to the Petitioner and to pay dividends. Curzon Green were able to secure a costs judgment against the Respondents early on due to unreasonable behaviour in the proceedings. The Team continued to apply the pressure in the lead up to the Costs and Case Management Hearing, despite the Respondent's lack of disclosure and failure to engage. The claim successfully settled with the Respondent required to buy back the shares at their estimated market value and reimburse the legal costs incurred by the Petitioner.
Thank you Jessica Bass for organising our summer quiz and social event via Teams. We all had lots of fun. Oh, and well done Lauren McLaughlin for winning!!

This week, a young British mother was delighted to finally get permission to bring her (non-EEA national) husband and child back home with her from Spain, after an incredibly challenging and uncertain year for the family. Our team utilised Surinder Singh provisions to help secure the visa. They are now over the moon to be able to finally come home (as are the grandparents of their British child). 

A US national was thrown into panic after the pandemic hit; just as she planned to join her British husband and start her new life with him in the UK. Our immigration team navigated her through uncertainty, liaising with decision-makers to ensure as little disruption as possible and prompted a speedy resolve. She is delighted to now have the visa in her hands and she intends to travel as soon as possible. 

Earlier this month our Dispute Resolution team from our High Wycombe office resolved through negotations a long running partnership dispute. Our client will receive significant damages together with a substantial contribution towards his legal costs.

Acting on a no-win-no-fee basis, Curzon Green secured a judgment for their client in an unlawful eviction claim against his former landlord. The landlord had evicted the Claimant one month into his tenancy, without giving any notice. The total damages awarded by the Court came to a five-figure sum and included damages under the Housing Act for failing to protect the tenant's deposit, damages for stress and anxiety, aggravated damages, loss of earnings, and compensation for the cost of having to arrange expensive emergency accommodation. The Court has also ordered the Defendant to pay the Claimant's costs in full.

The case is a warning for landlords that it is essential to follow the correct statutory procedures when seeking possession of a property. Curzon Green are able to assist landlords in obtaining possession legally and can also take on tenant's cases where the law has not been followed.
We are pleased that Imogen Kelly has joined us for the summer to assist our dispute resolution and family law teams. Imogen is currently undertaking a law degree and intends to return to university in September to complete the final year of her studies.
