Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Does the company have any presence in the UK?
If you go here and type the company name, it will come up with a list of results - when you click through on that specific company name, is that the company in question:
OK, thanks. And finally what would 3 months' notice that you are due be equivalent to in monetary terms?
Ok thanks. As the governing law of the contract is under England & Wales, you can consider making a claim in the English courts. The issue is that doing so will only give you a court judgment which you can apply in that country, against any assets held by the company there. If they are based abroad and have no physical presence in England, then you won’t be able to use that judgment to your benefit there. You do however have the option of transferring the judgment to a country where the company has assets and then trying to apply it or enforce it there. It’s not always that straightforward though, depending on which country you are transferring it to, whether it is in the EU or not and also depends on the local laws and regulations, as you will need to start the process in that country.

In the end you will have to consider starting the claims process in England, but before you start issuing a claim you really need to try and exhaust all options with the company first. For example, send them a final reminder, giving them a final deadline for compliance and advising them that the next step after that would be a court claim.
