We can not act for you, this is a question and answer service.You have the claim.You need to admit or deny each allegation made and if denied say why you deny it,Their claim should be in numbered paragraphs, so your defence needs to deal with each and every paragraph.You need to keep it concise and to the point.For contractual disputes it is unlikely to get no win no fee, I am sorry to say.

The claimant has received CFA funding to sue me, l do have a counter claim case as written in the agreement was that he was responsible for liabilities outstanding and not declared prior to the purchase of the business.
Then that is your defence.You should answer each allegation as I have said above and attach a copy of the agreement Please remember to click accept so that I am credited for my time. Thank you.
Sent in unfinshed last mail, if they want to prove that the signiture is false what would be the rot and does the expert have to be independant of both sides.
The court can either appoint a joint expert or each side can have its own.A joint expert is more common. Please remember to click accept so that I am credited for my time. Thank you.
with regard to the particulars of claim, they say that "The claimant did transfer all of his interest to the defendants and resigned as a director, the defendants taking up effective control of the business", to this as he did not disclose all of the outstanding liabilities did he actually transfer all of the interests?
Then you have the defence is misrepresentation.He made false statements that turned out to be wrong. Please remember to click accept so that I am credited for my time. Thank you.
