Our Executive Management Team have assisted numerous Individuals and Companies in Contractual disputes and especially where there has been a breach of contract. Here is a selection of the type of work our Executive Management Team have been involved in.
1. Two companies were involved in a complex takeover. The contract was drafted whereby the company being taken over believed that they had protected a manufacturing plant. After the takeover the plant was closed down. The company that had been taken over, sought damages for breach of contract.
2. A major UK manufacturer was exhibiting at the NEC. Their machinery; worth in excess of £1million, had been transported by a specialist carrier to and from the Exhibition. When the Machinery arrived it was all damaged as it had not been properly secured. A dispute arose as to who was responsible for correctly securing the machinery and the extent of the loss.
3. A Charity with over £12million turnover sought recompense from a local authority for services provided to it over a 6 year period. The value of the claim exceeded £2million. The central dispute was over whether there was a contract in place at all and if so how much should be paid for the service provided.
4. A UK manufacturing company entered into an agreement with a Canadian based multinational. As part of the contract a down payment of US$50m was to be paid once the initial implementation stage had been completed. It was not paid and the company sued.
5. An Indian gold recycling company entered into an agreement for a UK based company for the UK Company to supply second hand computers. Following the shipment of a large container load of computers the payment was not forthcoming. Action had to be taken and issues surrounding the service of proceedings in India had to be overcome.
6. An angel investor provided a £1m investment in a series of car dealerships in the Developing world. The investor had been promised a substantial return but it was not paid. He sought to secure his investment against the dealerships and take possession of their stock to recover his monies.
