Rachel’s client, the Claimant, was a small business who had carried out work for a local property developer who had then refused to pay. The Defendant had not responded to any of the paperwork from the court or Rachel’s client, so judgment had been entered for the Claimant.
The Defendant then made an application for that judgment to be ‘set aside’ and the case to be heard at a trial.
Rachel successfully opposed this application, her clear explanation of the case law and procedural rules regarding the setting aside of judgments persuading the Judge that the Defendant’s application should not succeed.
As a result, Rachel’s client was able to recover thousands of pounds from the Defendant without having to go through the stresses and costs of a trial.
