Our client a NSW based nation wide seller of truck parts and engines was accused of supplying goods not fit for their purpose. the Plaintiff had commenced proceedings in the District Court of Western Australia and had threatened to join our client as defendant seeking a claim for damages in the sum of $170,000.00. We wrote to the solicitor for the plaintiff and applying our mechanical engineering knowledge to the law, and also making reference to our clients terms and conditions of trade (which we hade drafted for the client previously) We explained to the Plaintiffs lawyers why such a claim against our client would fail based on the allegations of the mechanical failure that were made, and referred them to the particular clauses in our clients terms and conditions which protected our client.

Suffice to say, the Plaintiff did not join our client to the proceedings.
