Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you or the business suffered any actual serious harm please?
well our image has been tarnished with our business partners House of Fraser where we own and operate two restaurants under our own brand.
But have you suffered any serious harm?
i'm not sure what you mean by harm. He also filed a malicious complaint against us to the Guildford Borough Council saying we were violating health and safety laws so they sent an inspector to check our premises and we lost money as a result as the chef had to accompany the inspector around the premises and answer his questions so he wasn't able to prepare the food orders so we lost money as a result
This is the email he sent and you can see in it he admits that he complained to the Guildford Borough Council...
You can write a letter yourself and ask the person to stop
Further you can issue proceedings yoursel.f
You must be able to demonstrate serious harm and the proceedings MUST be issued in the High Court.
If the matter is contested it will go to trial and you will need professional representation
You are looking around £15,000 for this and legal aid is not available.
Therefore you must be sure you can evidence serious harm and risk £15,000 which you dont have any guarantee of getting back
If you proceed and lose then you will be liable for costs of the other side too, so that is a total of £30,000 costs exposure.
