Chester Solicitor successfully settles bitter business dispute

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.

Peri Mornington, Dispute Resolution Specialist and Solicitor for Manleys.

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.”
