Villa Plus


Working with longstanding client Villa Plus, Barney Laurence and Sherrards’ dispute resolution team succeeded in having two bogus websites taken down within 10 days of a court order. Owner Nick Cooper, has reported many fake sites to the authorities over the years but without quick action to disable those sites, consumers can lose considerable amounts of money and have their holiday plans shattered. In this particular case, Villa Plus discovered their properties were being advertised on fake web pages without the knowledge of the owners or Villa Plus. Despite repeated requests, the host provider had failed to take the sites down.

This matter has been published in The Evening Standard and on our blog.
