Contract Law

Kings Cross Barristers are able to provide legal advice and representation on a range of contract law disputes. Contract law concerns agreements made between two individuals or entities. In addition to the express terms of any agreement, there are a range of additional implied terms that can be enforced in the event of a breach. If you have been party to a contract and the other party have breached a contract, there are a range of potential remedies that you could seek through court proceedings. Our contract law barrister can draft particulars of claim, defend a claim, make a counterclaim, draft witness statements, create court bundles, providing litigation services throughout proceedings and advocate on your behalf at court hearings including case management hearings, track allocation hearings and final hearings. Examples of the type of service we can provide include:


Sale of Goods and Services and Consumer Rights

If you have purchased a goods  or service from someone or from a company, there a range of consumer protections that exist in law to protect your legal position. This includes terms imposed by the Sale of Goods Act 1979, Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 and Consumer Rights Act 2015. If you have purchased an item that is faulty or does not match the description with which it was advertised or not fit for purpose, the seller should offer a refund of the item that that you have purchased. The law also protects how services should match up to what has been agreed, and what should happen when they do not, or when they are not provided with reasonable care and skill. Kings Cross Barristers can offer advice, litigation and advocacy to both Claimants and Defendants in proceedings relating to sale of goods and service and consumer rights.

Holiday Claims

If something went wrong with your holiday that you paid for, it may be possible to get compensation. For example, if the holiday was lower in value than the one you booked such as getting a standard room when you paid for a deluxe room, you had to spend money due to a problem with your holiday such as having to book an alternative hotel or when something goes wrong that caused distress and disappointment. In these circumstances, Kings Cross Barristers will be able to advise on you on how best to proceed, what type of application needs to be made, prepare relevant statements, issue proceedings, advocacy on your behalf and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
