there are no written arrangements that I know of with mr y - my damages are lost of sale to one nursing home and the potential lose of up to 75 others

what I am trying to say is the mr x - and mr y went together under my company name to see a client and afterwards - mr y cut us out of the sale he made to the client

Your claim then is against x and y for your damages. Consider having a lawyer make demand by letter and then sue for same plus legal fees.
