please send him a legal notice intimating him that if he does not act as per the contract, you shall initiate legal action against him. give him a week's time to comply with the notice. if be does not comply with the notice, you may consider initiating a consumer case against him.

In this case, we need to peruse the agreement and then we can decide the appropriate strategy. I would want to see what your collaboration agreement states.

Once we have that in vision, we can accordingly take legal steps by sending legal notice and initiating proceedings if there is anything in the Agreement which is legally tenable.

Please feel free to discuss.
