Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What is the claim for? Please provide some more information
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. As the contractual relationship between you and the other party was subject to the laws of E&W, you are able to start the claim in these courts, rather than a Scottish one. That is because you have both agreed to let the English/Welsh courts have complete jurisdiction over any claims you may have so you would be expected to make a claim in the English courts to let them determine that. You may find that the respondent asks for the claim to be transferred to their local court, but that would generally mean one closer to them and still in England, rather than a Scottish one.
Does this answer your query?
Yes as you would be expected to submit the claim in the respondent’s jurisdiction
All the best
