Hi, have the other company signed a contract with your company?
yes we have acontract signedby them
They are based in California. We have emailed our concerns to them today and have asked them to respond urgently. We wanted some legal advice before threatening legal action.
What country's law gooverns the agreement?
Hi, does the company have any type of registered office in the UK?
No I dont believe they do.
We are probably looking at legal action in the US and wondered how easy this is and the best way to instigate it without having to go to America?
What is the value of the claim?
Sorry for the delayed response. I have been busy with other commitments today.
between 15 and 20 thousand pounds. Ditto about the delays...
Hi, you should be able to issue proceedings in the US with the assistance of a US Attorney. However, if the matter proceeds to trial, you may have to travel to the US.
How do we go about contracting an attorney, is it just a question of finding a website for one and going from there? Could we proceed on a no win no fee basis?
Hi, I wopuld suggest asking someone that has had to instruct a US Attorney, alternatively, searching the yellow pages etc.

This is the reason I came to justanswer - this doesnt really answer my question in any sort of detail or give me anywhere to go next that I couldnt try before.. Perhaps my question was not really relevant for a UK expert. You responded fairly quickly and several times so I am going to have to mark poor rather than bad service. Sorry.
Hi, which state is the defendant company based in?
1. Its not even a f**king UK law question.
2. The expert clearly has no clue about the US law system, which my question was about.
I dont want to waste any more time in this asynchronous 'expert' chat. This whole experience has been a waste of time for all concerned.
Hello and welcome, I am a U.S. attorney and would be happy to assist you if you would be so kind as to allow me. You simply wish to obtain sources to locate an attorney to represent you in this matter--a breach of contract case?
I am a U.S. attorney located in California. I will be happy to help if I can. Please let me know.
