In a long-standing legal dispute within the finishing industry, Schubert Technical Services Ltd V’s Jason Barnes t/a Deacon Finishes and Deacon Decor and Finishes Ltd, Schubert Technical Services Ltd were awarded their original claim in full, plus interest and a costs order against Deacon and Decor Finishes Ltd. Deacon’s counterclaim against Schubert was also dismissed in its entirety and costs awarded to Schubert. Permission for Deacon to appeal was refused.
The claim was due to be paid by the Defendant in full by 4pm 9th May 2014. This lapsed without any payment being made and before Schubert Technical Services Ltd had the opportunity to utilise High Court Enforcement Officers to recover the debt that had been defaulted on, Jason Alexander Barnes, sole Director of Deacon Decor and Finishes Ltd has taken the decision to wind up the company. A meeting of creditors has been called to take place on 28 May 2014.
A new company, AJH Coatings Ltd, with Jason Barnes as a Director is now trading from the same Castle Road address as Deacon Decor and Finishes Ltd and have exactly the same business activities.
Schuberts would like to thank all the ongoing support and assistance during the last 4 years of litigation and feel totally exonerated and justified for pursuing this case.
