Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Was it a Ltd Co you sold?

Hi Jamie, yes it was.
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I should add that this employee left the company at the time it was sold

Ok. Then no, you can't sue.

You sold the Ltd co. It was the Ltd Co that lost. Only the Ltd co can sue this person.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.

Correct.

Does that assist?
