Another successful result for Real Estate Litigation, Mike Lewis and George Faulkner had victory in a two-day trial for a leading firm of City Surveyors against Spink (the international auction house) at Central London County Court. It was a most interesting case as to when an agent was the “effective cause” of a negotiated rent for a lease renewal.
Full copy of Judgment delivered can be viewed here.
Counsel on the case George Woodhead, Selborne Chambers stated:
“Mike and George managed the case superbly from pre-action letters to trial. They looked after our client’s interests throughout by giving astute advice and ultimately, ensuring that the necessary evidence was available and effectively presented at trial. A deserved result reflecting both our client’s hard work and Sherrards’ well-known litigation prowess.”
Mathew Bailey, Partner at Angerman Goddard Lloyd Surveyors:
“This was a fantastic result exceeding our expectations and fully justifying our decision to pursue the claim. Mike and his team provided expert advice throughout the process and George, our barrister, argued our case with the upmost skill. A great team and a great victory”
Mike Lewis, Partner:
“It was great to work with our long-standing client surveyors AGL and achieve such a fantastic result for them. The Judge accepted the significant levels of work that they had undertaken in assisting with lease negotiations and awarded the maximum remuneration. Working with Mathew Bailey at AGL was a pleasure. I have worked with Counsel George Woodhead on numerous cases and once again his support and input throughout the case was excellent and his performance at trial was outstanding.”
