Solicitors in Southend

Southend (or Southend-on-Sea) is a mid-sized town and seaside resort in Essex. With a population of over 150,000, Southend solicitors offer a full range of services, from probate to company and commercial matters. It is sometimes thought that the general public only requires certain legal services, such as divorce advice and criminal representation, whilst commercial entities would require solicitors that specialise in contract law. This is not necessarily the case, as illustrated by a recent case which required Southend solicitors to offer contract law advice to a former scout leader.

The case was brought by a 24-year-old who helped set up the Triton Explorer Scout Unit. After the unit split up she was charged with the responsibilities of managing activities for the children in her unit. As part of the Scout organisation she was entitled to funding from the subsidies, fundraising events and fees, but had not received any payments. Since she felt that the funds would eventually be sent she had spent £2,800 of her own money to organise the events, but the funding never came.

Solicitors in Southend were instructed and the Scout organisation was approached. The matter was eventually settled out of court with reports stating that the former leader received all her money back.

This case shows that contract law can become an issue in everyday life of individuals, and not only companies.
