Manley’s, a leading Chester law firm, are celebrating the success of one of their solicitors following her swift settlement of a cross border litigation case. Despite the complications of the case, Peri Mornington, Dispute Resolution Specialist and Solicitor, finalised the jurisdictional dispute out of court.
The dispute occurred after a fallout between two former business partners, who are unnamed for legal reasons. With both partners failing to finalise a written agreement, this led to no jurisdiction clause being agreed. Despite this, Peri Mornington secured £20,000 for her client, explaining: “The lack of a formal agreement with jurisdiction clauses could have caused issues in this case but we were happily able to secure an advantageous result without proceedings. It is worth noting that a jurisdiction clause is something which is of relevance since Brexit”
The solicitor added: “Friends and family, and even close business partners, often do not feel there is a need to formalise their agreements in writing. Unfortunately, relationships can and do break down. When this happens, disagreements can escalate to legal proceedings.”
