Examples of Work 

  1. Acting for a well-known food and drink brand in a seven figure claim against negligent engineers. The claim arose out of specialist scientific and engineering advice relating to the design and construction of waste processing facilities. Our client suffered high losses over a number of years which could have been avoided had the professionals used the skill and care that was expected of them rather than making incorrect or unsupported assumptions.
  2. Obtaining an approx. £500,000 settlement from a large international firm of accountants which had performed the role of internal and external audit for a quasi-public body. A large fraud had gone undetected for a number of years and the accountants were negligent in failing to detect large misappropriations of funds and in failing to warn of risks or weaknesses in the relevant systems. Settlement of a significant proportion of the sum claimed was achieved shortly after the issue of proceedings.
  3. Successfully claiming against a firm of architects who had failed to adhere to industry standards, and to take relevant context into account, when designing a concrete structure. The cause of the subsequent failure of the concrete was the subject of significant expert advice and lengthy disputes between a number of parties including sub-contractors. We put in place a fast and effective alternative dispute resolution mechanism that lead to our client being paid the full cost of repairs to the structure in question.
