The contract dispute between the Grey agency in London and Carol Reay is threatening to reach the courts after the issue of a writ by its erstwhile deputy chairman.

The contract dispute between the Grey agency in London and Carol

Reay is threatening to reach the courts after the issue of a writ by its

erstwhile deputy chairman.



Lawyers acting for Reay set the stage for a possible High Court action

at the end of last week with a writ claiming breach of contract.



The move follows Reay’s abrupt departure from the agency on 14

April.



She claimed Grey had failed to honour its contractual obligation to make

her chairman at the beginning of the month.



Grey’s chief executive, Steve Blamer, this week hit back at Reay’s

action.



’It didn’t need to be this way,’ he said. ’For some reason she has

chosen to play this out in the media rather than the High Court. You

have to ask yourself why.’



Reay declined to comment.
