This latest victory follows on from WFW’s success in PBS Energo AS v Bester Generacion UK Ltd last year.
WFW was recognised for obtaining a landmark High Court ruling on the enforcement of adjudication decisions in cases of fraud in construction projects on behalf of Bester Generacion in the case of PBS Energo A.S. v Bester Generacion UK Limited
WFW achieves landmark High Court ruling on enforcement of adjudication decisions in cases of fraud in construction projects
This case is the first occasion in which the court has refused to order enforcement in such circumstances.
In a very significant decision handed down today, the English High Court has refused to enforce an adjudication decision on the basis that there was a properly arguable defence that the decision had been obtained by fraud. The case, in which WFW acted for the successful party, appears to be the first occasion on which the court has refused to order enforcement in such circumstances.
How does the recent Court of Appeal judgment in North Midland Building Ltd v Cyden Homes Ltd affect the prevention principle in English law?
