The role of legal expert
Owing to the bad state of repair of an awning, a tenant became involved in a dispute with the owner of the property in respect of outstanding maintenance. The shop had such a run down appearance that it led to a drastic drop in sales. The District court retained Horatio to provide legal advice, which advice was followed by the court.
In 2010 there was a definite conclusion to the Dumeco/Loman Agro case. Proceedings had been commenced in 1990 on the basis of breach of contract and were finally concluded 20 years later. Horatio was appointed legal expert together with experts from the meat industry. The advice we provided was followed by the court.
