Lee Silk from our Marlow office successfully applied for summary judgment in relation to an adjudicator’s decision for an overseas client. Part 8 proceedings were made in the Technology & Construction Court. The Defendant is based in London and made last minute submissions to the Court of dishonesty against our client. The Judge ordered that the decision be enforced in full against the Defendant and awarded our client his costs in full. 
Jennifer Sole, Lauren McLaughlin and Uzair Zafar recently secured financial settlement for their clients who had brought various complex and technical employment claims under the Equality Act 2010, the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Working Time Regulations, among other complaints. The claims were brought against an international financial services firm. The matters settled for six figure sums, following mediation, avoiding the need for a lengthy and stressful 15-day liability hearing in the Employment Tribunal. We are thrilled that we have been able to successfully resolve the long-standing disputes. 
The UK Government has been consulting on significant reforms to judicial review in England and Wales. Acting with a panel of employment law experts, Jessica Bass and Lauren McLaughlin of Curzon Green’s Employment Team contributed to the consultation by formally responding to questions relating to proposed procedural changes. This includes potentially removing the requirement for a judicial review claim to be issued "promptly" and considerations regarding the three-month time limit. The consultation ran until the end of April, and the Government is currently analysing the feedback. We can expect to see at least some of the reforms taken forward later in the year.

Our Dispute Resolution Team were recently successful in obtaining Judgment for a long-standing client in its claim against defendants who were in breach of contract.
Acting on a Conditional Fee Agreement, our Lee Silk and Uzair Zafar were successful in resisting an application by the Defendants for relief from sanctions following a series of procedural breaches on their part. The substantive matter involved complex legal arguments concerning warranties, breach of contract, consumer legislation and technical evidence in relation to the leasing of vehicles.
We were successful in applying to strike out the Defence in the lead-up to trial and also in resisting the defendants’ application for relief from sanctions. Over the course of the claim, at least three interim applications were made by the parties.
In securing Judgment, we achieved substantial damages for the client with costs to be assessed. 
The Judgment of His Honour Stephen Davies was handed down yesterday in a High Court claim proceeding through the Business and Property Courts. We were successful in securing damages of £85,651.50 and proving beyond reasonable doubt that the Defendant had breached the previous interm injunction we had obtained protecting the interests of the company. The sentancing hearing of the Defendant will be listed in due course.

Curzon Green were successful in securing their client substantial damages in compensation for an injury he sustained during a Judo grading session. The claimant suffered a fracture to his humerus and related nerve damage as a result of a collision with an unpadded brick wall close to the fighting area. The case involved consideration of whether the defendant, a judo club, had followed the relevant health and safety guidelines as recommended by the sport’s governing body. Acting on a no-win-no-fee basis, our solicitors were able to negotiate a five-figure settlement shortly after issuing proceedings, despite the defendant’s denial of liability. Costs will also be recoverable.
