No.

This is not a criminal offence. It is a civil matter.

You can sue her in Court for damages to your business.

Does that answer your question?

Do you handle such civil matters?
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 6 months ago.

I am not permitted to act for you unfortunately as the rules of the site prohibit me from doing so but you can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
