Lilian vs. Barclays (Woolwich)
Claim issued against Barclays (trading as Woolwich). Claim issued in May. Barclays submitted a detailed defence. The court asked us to answer the points raised in the defence, which we did. A court hearing date of 3 October was set. A week before the hearing, Barclays offered to settle but failed to add on all the interest that had accrued since the issuing of the claim (another £120). Barclays also wanted a confidentiality agreement. We held out for the full amount and were not prepared to accept the confidentiality clause; Barclays agreed on 29 September, and paid into Lilian's account the day before the court hearing.

Email from Barclays agreeing to the full sum plus no confidentiality clause
Dear Mr Egerton
I write further to our telephone conversation this afternoon.
I confirm that the settlement sum will be increased to £4,379.00 to take account of statutory interest accrued since the claim was issued in May.
I will also agree to waive the confidentiality term.
Payment will be made to Ms xxxxx's account. I will ask for the payment to be made by close of business Monday.
Kindly acknowledge this email.
