Supply of Goods
A specialist supplier of automotive parts was suing for payment of goods supplied directly to a third party, but the purchaser refused to pay, saying there was no evidence of a contract allegedly set up by predecessors at their company.
It was a pity that this dispute had arisen, because the specialist supplier had excellent products, which the defendant company wished to buy. Agreement was reached whereby the claim was withdrawn, with an undertaking that goods of a certain value would be purchased over a period, giving the defendant the goods they wanted, and giving the supplier much more in profit on those goods than the amount he was suing for.
Litigation destroys relationships; mediation can restore them.
