In this case the client had already commenced proceedings claiming breach of contract. They had drafted the Particulars of Claim themselves but these had been struck out by the court. Things were looking bleak.
We met to talk about the details of the case. I was then able to re-draft the Particulars of Claim so that they could be submitted to the court as amended.
We also discussed the client’s objectives and strategy. It became apparent that we could put the claim in a different way, which could have the effect of increasing the value. This involved considering limitation and a number of procedural issues. We worked together to get the evidence support that claim, including talking to potential witnesses.
The client was very organised and was able to do a lot of the work themselves in putting together the documentation, and, under my guidance, drafting witness evidence.
Ultimately, this all showed the opponent that the client was committed and determined, and a settlement was achieved.
“I really appreciate all your support and everything you have done for me.”
