I have been verbally abused at my shop by another shop

This answer was rated:

I have been verbally abused at my shop by another shop owner. Is there anything I can do?
Assistant: Where are you located? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Heskin Lancashire
Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I made an official complaint to the manager of the buildiing. We are both in a small retail centre. I have also been asked to put a complaint in writing to the landlord who we both rent from.
Assistant: Anything else you want the solicitor to know before I connect you?
Customer: Two years ago I had a run in with this person .

What action are you hoping to take?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
A solicitors letter warning her .
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I have to go out . Will check back later.

Yes, you can do that.

That would cost about £100 plus VAT or thereabouts.

You certainly could get a solicitor to write to her though. Any high street firm would do that. A barrister under public access would probably be cheaper.

Can I clarify anything for you?
