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.

Jessica Bass and Victoria Simon recently secured a successful settlement for their client acting in a discrimination claim under the Equality Act 2010. The claim was against two responsible bodies that provide education for students under section 91 of the Equality Act 2010, in relation to the treatment our client received during their training placement.

 

Acting on a no-win-no-fee basis, Curzon Green assisted in bringing claims for breach of contract, bullying, harassment, victimisation and direct discrimination against the responsible bodies in the way that they provided education to our client, afforded access to education and by subjecting our client to detriments throughout the course. The Defendants denied liability in pre-action correspondence and proceedings were subsequently issued, which both Defendants defended. The case involved complex arguments relating to the legal status of the Defendants under the Equality Act 2010 and the relationship between them, particularising the acts of discrimination against each of the Defendants, limitation of those acts and assessing the causal link between the discriminatory acts of each of the Defendants and our client’s losses. 

 

The claim settled prior to a case management conference taking place and the five-figure settlement sum included compensation for our client’s losses and injury to feelings, and also included a settlement for our client’s legal costs. 

We are pleased to welcome Sarah Chowdry to the team. Sarah lives local to High Wycombe and will be working from both our High Wycombe and London offices focusing in property law and commercial law. Sarah recently qualified as a solciitor having trained with another Buckinghamshire firm.

Lauren McLaughlin and Victoria Simon recently assisted an employee in appealing a gross misconduct dismissal, which was upheld and resulted in their employment being re-instated with immediate effect.
 
An allegation had been made about the employee’s conduct at work, which the employee denied and believed there had been a misunderstanding. The employee was suspended with pay whilst an investigation into the allegation took place. At the conclusion of the investigation and disciplinary process, the employer decided that the employee would be dismissed. At first glance, the employer appeared to follow a fair process when investigating the allegation. However, Curzon Green assisted the employee prepare robust grounds of appeal challenging the severity of the sanction and highlighting inconsistencies with how other employees had been treated.
 
After considering the appeal grounds, the employer agreed to overturn its gross misconduct decision. It decided to reinstate the employee’s employment and to pay full pay for the period since the (unfair) dismissal. Curzon Green were pleased to assist the employee during what was a very uncertain and stressful time in their life, and were thrilled that our client achieved their desired outcome swiftly. Re-instatement is not often offered, particularly in alleged gross misconduct situations. Timely legal advice in this case helped maintain the employee’s reputation and achieve a fair outcome.
