Julie Meyer hires yet another lawyer to deal with "inaccurate" press comment

By Tom Winnifrith | Tuesday 1 May 2018


At the last count Julie Meyer MBE had worked her way through 11 lawyers in the past few years. The list of outstanding creditors when Ariadne Capital Limited went tits up included six UK law firms. Now it seems she has hired another, to deal with wicked Journalists spreading untruths about her problems in Malta. It is a FACT that on 25 April the Court order Police to find Ms Meyer within 48 hours after she failed to turn up for one of several cases involving unpaid wages but Julie says the press has got it all wrong and has just issued the following statement:

Due to the unprecedented inaccurate media reporting coming from the press in Malta, which is subsequently being re-distributed by international media, Ariadne Capital Group Limited is compelled to make a public statement to make clear that the suggestions being made about Julie Meyer's position are completely untrue.

Julie Meyer refutes all accusations of being put on notice of any court order or judgment in the Maltese Courts. There was a short hearing last Wednesday to deal with a couple of outstanding employment disputes which Ariadne's lawyer was in funds to deal with and in respect of which she was not asked to attend.

At all stages, Ms Meyer and her team have made exhaustive efforts to collaborate and cooperate with the authorities to resolve any issues and they will continue to do so. Ariadne only wishes to have full and final compromise agreements in place with employees or consultants who did not sign agreements and are claiming employee status. This is a requirement of a regulated entity.

"Both my team and I will continue to go about our business professionally. Ariadne is in a strong position and both my team and I will continue to go about our business professionally and to make it a success," Julie Meyer says.

Farrer is an international law firm. In the good old days media enquiries were directed to PR man Henry Gewanter. I wonder why he is not on the release any more?
