Hi there, so I think we discussed most of the options they have for suing you when we spoke last time. In reality there is very little they can do to sue you for the termination of the contract. All the threats they had made are mainly a lot of hot air. It is not that it is impossible to sue you but in reality this will be prohibitively expensive and will be procedurally rather complex.
If they were to contact your clients to advise them of your alleged breach then the position is quite similar, in a sense that you suing them is going to be quite a headache. First of all there is no immediately obvious claim to make against them. Unless there was a confidentiality clause in the contract that they have breached, the only potential claim would be for defamation, and then it would only be possible if they had disclosed false or untrue information about you. So if they contact the clients and simply inform them of the factual information that has happened then legally speaking they would not have done anything wrong. If they did provide false information then it could amount to defamation but even in the UK this is a difficult and expensive claim at the best of times, let alone suing someone across foreign jurisdictions. So you are best advised not to pursue any legal action, but you may of course use the threat of a defamation claim if needed to try and push them into considering their actions.
