Alumnus wins landmark legal case

Jackie Ray (1990) on behalf of  her client Bresco Electrical Services Ltd (In Liquidation) was successful in the appeal to the Supreme Court over a case regarding insolvency and Adjudication in the construction industry on behalf of Blaser Mills Law.

The appeal has been described as a landmark case for the construction industry. Blaser Mills Law acted on behalf of the liquidator to clarify the position regarding the use of adjudication when one party is insolvent. The Court of Appeals decision was overturned on all points.

“With the severe impact Covid-19 has had on the construction industry, the decision is well-timed for those facing insolvency because of the pandemic." said Jackie. “They will no longer have to ignore a potentially good adjudication claim and have the reassurance that it can be pursued even after they enter an insolvency process.”
