Clyde & Co Named ‘Litigation Team Of The Year’ For ‘David And Goliath’ Case

Profession:Clyde & Co

International law firm Clyde & Co was last night awarded the 'Litigation Team of the Year' Award at The Lawyer Awards 2015. The firm was also runner up in the 'Law Firm of the Year' and third in the 'Real Estate Team of the Year' awards.

The team, led by partner Neil Jamieson who instructed Clive Freedman QC and Neil Mendoza, successfully took on Companies House on behalf of Philip Davison Sebry, whose business, Taylor and Sons, was ruined when Companies House registered a winding up order for insolvency against it, rather than the similarly named company, Taylor and Son Limited. Although the error was quickly corrected, it had already been broadcast by credit referencing agencies, triggering unprecedented pressure from suppliers and customers and resulting in the loss of the Company's largest customer. These events took place during a difficult economic time for SMEs and as hard as the Company fought to survive the effect on its cash flow, it proved too great and it was forced into Administration on 9 April 2009 after more than 100 years trading and the loss of around 250 jobs.
