Fast Track Trial persuading a court that a builder was negligent in their work and client should be refunded the entirety of all monies spent as well as damages.

ACTING FOR – Defendant.

WHICH COURT – Medway County Court.

OUTCOME – Following an unsuccessful mediation, the matter was listed for a one-day fast track trial.  It was necessary to challenge the evidence of an expert witness, who was persuaded that perhaps the evidence they initially gave (against our client) may have been based on faulty facts and reasoning. 

INTERESTING POINTS – This was a very technical case involving analysis of building materials, appropriate use of building materials and techniques in accordance with building regulations, and whether there is a requirement on a tradesman to provide certificates of sign-off prior to receiving full payment.
