Rugby League player’s claim

We acted in a claim by a high profile former sportsman. We contested liability and quantum. As a precautionary measure, we filed an offer of compromise early in proceedings. Our investigation of the economic loss claim succeeded in containing the plaintiff’s damages award below the original offer. As a result, the plaintiff was ordered to pay our client’s costs from the date of offer.
