Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you this evening.
This sounds like a partnership to me, even if nothing was written in to a contract, so you have a right to access the email. You could do this with an injunction. A letter/email needs to be sent to her to threaten an injunction unless she provides the access. Do you have her email address or postal address?
Thanks, ***** ***** a law question or an IT one?
Your business partner (or ex business partner) is blocking you from accessing it? An injunction can be applied for to ensure you have the access - a cease and desist letter should be sent to her first (one can be downloaded from the Law Depot website, which is http://www.lawdepot.co.uk). This is usually required first so that if you do have to apply for an injunction then the court can see that you have made an attempt at warning her and giving her notice that a civil injunction would be applied for unless she allows you access within say 7 days.
