Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.

Expert:  JimLawyer replied 4 months ago.

OK, how much have they claimed?

And I presume you received the N1 claim form and a response pack with the court documentation?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
i have sent an email, please have a look and advice.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
we have removed the listing straightaway and we didnt have any intention to harm them either.
Expert:  JimLawyer replied 4 months ago.

Will do - the site will send me the attachment at some point today so I will come back to you when they do. The claimant would have to prove a financial loss by the way - if you took the listing down right away it would be difficult for them to claim anything in my view but I will look at the documents and will advise further

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Ok. awaiting your reply.
Expert:  JimLawyer replied 4 months ago.

Hi, the attachments came through but they are in German (I thought the claim was being made by someone in the UK against you). As such I will have to opt out to let a German lawyer help you with this going forwards - please do not reply to this as the question will remain with me and there will be a delay.

Thank you

Hello Jim, No one came back to me. Can you please confirm if some one is still looking in to this,as i have to reply them.
Expert:  Nicola-mod replied 4 months ago.
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Hello, i can wait for couple of days. To be honest, i tried few times on this website, but i never received any satisfactory answer or solicitor who can resolve the matter.
Expert:  Nicola-mod replied 4 months ago.
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you. You could also try posting this question directly on our sister site in German ( using a translation service - there may be a wider range of German professionals there. If you do decide to try this, please let me know, and I will close this one for you.
Thank you for your patience,
