Hello I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
Even if you withdraw your claim the Defendant's counterclaim will continue. ie if you drop your claim the defendant's can still seek money from you. How much money is at stake and which trac (small claims, fast trak ect) is thus in?
I am busy with my children on and off this morning but will get back to this site later today.
is that counterclaim £33,000 or is that a mistype? That should not be in the small claims court.

Even if yo withdraw you will need to attend at court. With this level of money involvled you need to see a solicitor face to face. As far as withdrawing your claim is concerned you should contact the Court directly, either by email, letter, fax or telephone. If you are withdrawing your claim you should also confirm that you have notified the defendant.
Do you need any more information from me? if so please ask. If not I would be grateful if you would rate my answer as I will not get credited for my answers if yo do not do so.
