B P Collins’ dispute resolution team recover £180,000 consultancy fee for client

Matthew Brandis, partner and practice group leader in the dispute resolution practice group was asked to advise on the merits of a potential claim against a company involved in the seasonal service industry.

Matthew comments:

"The potential claim was not an easy one to advise on, nor to resolve, because of the vagueness of the contractual terms agreed between the two parties.  There was no one written agreement but instead a series of emails and notes of conversations which needed to be woven together to explain the terms of a contract.  This was not an ideal start ! 

However, having analysed the emails/ notes of conversations it was possible to argue that certain contractual terms had been agreed between the parties and I am happy to say that after a series of Part 36 Offers had been made (these are special types of settlement offers) the parties settled with a payment of £180,000 being made to our client”.
