Local law firms settles complicated commercial case

Manleys Solicitors, a leading Chester law firm, are celebrating another win, following a complicated commercial dispute between two businesses. The business owners, who are unnamed for legal reasons, failed to translate a verbal agreement into a written one. This led to jurisdictional issues, with Manley’s legal opponent being based in Northern Ireland, and no jurisdiction clause being agreed.

Led by Peri Mornington, Dispute Resolution Specialist and Solicitor, the law firm have congratulated her swift settlement of the jurisdictional dispute out of court. Despite the complications of Manley’s legal opponent residing in Northern Ireland, Peri Mornington secured £20,000 for her client.

Speaking on behalf of the law firm, Peri Mornington explains: “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.”
