Alex Watts : What is your claim for please?

My claim is for both Misrepresentation and / or Breach of Contract.


The company went into administration, but I was also misled into signing the contract, which I feel is my stronger arguement


I would like to claim for both, but the wording all seems to point to either one OR the other.



Alex Watts : You can claim for birth.
Alex Watts : Both
Alex Watts : But when you make a claim you claim for breach of contract and in the alternative misrepresentation.
Alex Watts : so it's both but as an alternative.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

That's fine,
