Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Could you explain the situation a little more?
But you have an email saying you are entitled to X - have I understood you correctly?
That is ok. Well even if you have the email (although there is no formal written contract) it shows an offer for shares which I assume you accepted.
Therefore you can rely on this as your contract. What you can do is write and ask for the shares or value and if you do not get them within 14 days you will go to Court. Make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.
If they refuse then you can issue proceedings which can either be done online at: www,moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and taking it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which will be sent to the other side and they will have a limited to defend, if not you can enter Judgment.
If they do defend then the matter will be set down for a hearing and you can show the Judge the details of the email.
If this answers your question could I invite you to rate my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
Please remember that I am always happy to help if you have future questions, even if I am in Court I can normally respond within a few hours. For future information, please start them with ‘For Alex W’.
