If you accept an out of court settlement for your counter claim you can bring back to court as this can be deemed an abuse of the court process. Therefore your subsequent claim is at risk of being struck out.
I hope I have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
Yes you may be precluded from further court action if you withdraw your counter claim.
The court rules permits you to amend your counter claim. Therefore I suggest you consider instructing a solicitor ASAP to assist you with regards ***** ***** your documents and making the necessary application to permit the court accept the revised claim you wish to make.
Yes you can do so and this can be done at the same time you amend the counter claim.
