Expertise and Past Cases
Recent notable cases Vicky has worked on include:
- Acting for a landlord with a portfolio of well-established town centre retail units in respect of various debt recovery matters relating to rent, service charge and insurance charge arrears.
- Acting for a husband and wife in respect of a claim against Buy 2 Let Cars Limited, which went into administration in March 2021. This dispute settled for a substantial sum.
- Acting for a brother and sister in a dispute with their stepmother regarding their late father’s estate. The stepmother wanted to set aside a settlement agreement which was entered into in September 2019 on the basis that the estate had received further substantial sums in April 2021. The stepmother eventually abandoned her claim to have the settlement agreement set aside, meaning that our clients received further substantial sums from the estate.
- Acting for an Italian restaurant in relation to trademark infringement proceedings against another restaurant using the same name.
- Acting for three individuals in a claim brought against their former employer. Our clients left their former employer to setup their own business. The former employer’s claim related to breach of fiduciary duties, breach of fidelity duties, misuse of confidential information and diverting business away. The claim was valued at £150,000 but settled for far less than that given the weaknesses in the former employer’s claim.
- Acting for the Claimant in the reported case of Freshasia Foods Limited v Jing Lu which related to misuse of confidential information and breach of restrictive covenants contained in the Defendant’s employment contract. This case was heard by the High Court of Justice on an expedited basis in March 2019.
- Acting for a New York based pastry house in various trademark infringement cases relating to the use of the trademark “cronut”.
- Acting for a company engaged in the management and progression of mis-sold PPI claims in a breach of contract claim against a firm of solicitors relating to unpaid commissions.
