  • Overview

    We acted in relation to a large multi party claim arising from the failure of a major piled retaining wall on a land slipped escarpment, at a coastal development of luxury apartments.

    We were appointed by the developer following the main contractor entering into administration and, further to negotiating assignments with the administrator, pursued claims against the project structural engineers (who had undertaken a flawed scope of ground investigation) and the piling subcontractor (who in turn joined in their appointed structural engineer).

    The geotechnical issues were very complex, with little consensus between the appointed experts, and the issues on quantum were complex by reason of the main contractor’s insolvency. Despite these complexities, matters were driven towards a mediation at which settlement was achieve on very good terms for our client.

    The case was handled throughout in a way that enabled us to work closely with our client to allow them to continue with and complete the development, in conjunction with running the litigation and enabled the project to proceed with full economic viability, despite the catastrophic impact of the failure of the wall on the development and its cash flow.
