Re: Infringement of Copyright
We refer to previous correspondence in relation to an infringement of copyright matter we have been communicating on. If you have recently made payment in full or received a letter from us confirming that the matter has been satisfactorily concluded then please disregard this letter. In order to allow us to focus on the issuing of proceedings, our client has instructed agents, GCB Limited, to correspond with you directly in relation to the above matter in place of ACS Law Solicitors. Accordingly, all outstanding correspondence that may have been received from you has been passed to GCB Limited, at the request of our client. Please address all future correspondence and communication to GCB Limited and not us, as we are no longer instructed to correspond or communicate with you. If you wish to make payment in acceptance and settlement of the compromise agreement previously offered, you are most welcome to do so, but please direct payment to GCB Limited and not us. This firm will only contact you again if we are separately instructed by our client to issue proceedings, but until then you should direct all enquiries and payments to GCB Limited. Thank you.
