Can We Help 25.08.2016
Judicare is very often contacted by people who have found themselves involved in Court  proceedings in Cyprus – whether as Plaintiffs or Defendants – asking whether we can find out at what  stage these Court proceedings are.
If these Court proceedings are handled in  Court in Cyprus by Barristers appointed by Judicare the task of finding out is easy as the requested  information is in their corresponding client’s file and an exchange of e-mails is all that is needed.
Things become somewhat more difficult  when the people requesting information are involved in  Court proceedings in which Judicare is not, through its appointed Barristers, representing them.

In view of the above Judicare has decided to assist all these people requesting information by setting up a service for people who want to find out where things stand with Court proceedings pending before the Courts in Cyprus, in which they are implicated.
It must be clarified that the provision of this service DOES NOT mean that Judicare takes over the handling of the case in Court.
The person requesting information may already have his or her own lawyer. The handling of the case in Court remains with him or her depending always on the decision of the person who appointed him or her.

In order that Judicare can assist potential clients as mentioned above the following two requirements must be satisfied.

(a) Provide a written authorization enabling the Barristers appointed by Judicare to carry out a search of the relevant Court file. (The exact wording can be provided by Judicare at request).

(b) Payment of a fixed fee of £700 +VAT - which represents the out of pocket expenses to be incurred plus the fees of the person who will be carrying out the relevant search in Court in Cyprus and for us then to provide the requested information.

Should you wish to understand the service above in more detail or discuss any concerns you may have at present related to current or potential court proceedings in Cyprus, we remain available and at your disposal.

Property problems in the United Arab Emirates and a landmark ruling 30.06.2016

If you are encountering problems with an off-plan property purchase in the United Arab Emirates, then news of a recent landmark case being successfully concluded in the UAE may offer some hope.

Following a long, arduous and technically demanding legal challenge in the United Arab Emirate of Ras-al-Khaimah, Judicare through the use of our legal partner in the UAE have in recent weeks successfully returned in excess of £1.2M to a group of clients.

Litigation in the Arab Emirates can at times prove to be an intricate maze to navigate a path through and invariably clients often find themselves the subject of concerted efforts to frustrate them and the legal process; particularly when the defendant is a local property developer.

This certainly proved to be exactly the situation in relation to a project known as La Hoya Bay which was to be developed on the Al Marjan Island in Ras-al-Khaimah.

Over 700 investors in total had paid deposits to the developer Khoie Properties for the purchase of off-plan properties at the project.

Over many years from 2008 a catalogue of events eventually resulted in the project failing, leaving all 700 investors facing combined losses of almost $50M in deposits.

We had been contacted by hundreds of investors over many years however only a small number of investors eventually decided to formally take up their legal rights before the Arbitration courts in Ras-al-Khaimah and commence a legal challenge.

After a 6 year legal battle we were finally able to inform those clients who took up their legal rights of the good news in recent weeks and have now been able to fully reimburse their monies.

Sadly, the issues arising from this long legal battle are commonplace as investors all over the world continue to potentially and consistently place themselves – and their funds – at risk due to inadequate or at times no legal advice on their investments at the time of signing purchase contracts.

If you would like to discuss your case, have any concerns over your current situation or simply would like more information on our approach one of the team will be happy to take your call on a confidential basis at 01438 840258 or via email to admin@judicaregroup.com

Cyprus Court Proceedings 16.06.2016

Through the use of TCA Law in Cyprus, we are now awaiting the final setting down of firm trial dates in relation to our clients and their claims against the banks in Cyprus as it concerns the issues of Swiss Franc Loans taken out for the purchases of immovable properties in Cyprus.

As one of the first legal firms to start fighting the cases on their merit in Cyprus courts - and not seeking to frustrate and/or challenge Writs and their service to UK residents in order to delay the legal process whilst incurring substantial legal fees and/or looking into the issues arising from a costly and lengthy Jurisdiction argument - we remain at the forefront of the strategies now being followed by others, that is for clients to pursue their claims in Cyprus Courts.

We continue to offer a fixed fee structure, which provides for a personal approach to a client and their specific objectives and does not seek to “group” everyone together as we are aware clients want the confidence of knowing that their personal affairs are being looked after on an individual level.

Uncertain staged retainers with legal firms can often feel completely open ended leaving clients with no fixed idea of ultimate costs and the constant changes to legal strategies can also cause confusion.

If you are encountering these types of concerns relating to your current legal position, and/or are now being quoted fees of £20,000 - £25,000 for a single litigation case in Cyprus, we continue to offer a no cost no obligation initial review of a client’s documentation in order to assess the merits of their claims prior to incurring any legal costs.

If you would like to discuss your case or simply would like more information on our fixed fee approach one of the team will be happy to take your call on a confidential basis at 01438 840258 or via email to admin@judicaregroup.com
