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.
