Can you explain a little more so:
There is Party A - do you work for party A the introducer?
Party B - You, Party A introduces the client to you?
C - the client, who buys services from you?
C does not want to pay the introduction fee due by them to Party A for introducing C to you Party B. You have a contract to sell goods or services to C but now Party A says well if they won't pay the introduction fee to me then you should not work with them because I introduced you? If that is correct do you do a lot of work with Party A because I can see that you could just carry on and sell to C but then Party A might refuse to introduce anyone else to you in future
I understand. Well you have no agreement with him not to work with the client directly as far as I can tell so I do not see it is breach of contract. If you are not concerned about losing him as an introducer you could just say to the client, well I will work with you directly, my fee is £12 an hour here is a contract for my services if you are happy with that I can start as soon as you let me know you want me to work.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Yes well, I think you need to defend your position and be careful you do not put yourself in the dispute between the client C and the introducer Party A. You just continue providing the service to the client and ask them to pay you directly for your past service. The client can then resolve the dispute with the introducer as they want, or indeed if they want. You then carry on providing the service to the client.
