Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. can you tell me why you are going to a tribunal please.
Hi, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied. When you say you want to go to court what are you trying to claim against the company?
Whilst you are certainly able to use that judgment to support your case because it is after all a formal decision of a court of law, it does not guarantee that the court where you make the new claim will agree with it. These will be two separate cases, in separate venues and with separate judges. Just because a judge in a previous case has found that you are a partner does not mean that the other court will agree and they will determine this from fresh based on the evidence you have provided and any defence the other party has submitted. The tribunal judgment will not be binding on the court because tribunal judgments are not legally binding - they can be persuasive but the courts in any subsequent case will not be obliged to follow it and are free to come to their own conclusion at the time
again, to an extent, for example if this is not provided as formal witness evidence in the new claim where the witness can be cross-examined on it, it will only hold limited weight
you are welcome, all the best
