Technology & Construction
Michael Norman's experience in this area chiefly relates to disputes between client and architects, surveyors and builders in the residential field, involving particularly issues under the Defective Homes Act 1972.
Notable cases in this field include:
Michael Phillips Architects Limited v Riklin, hard fought litigation in the Technology & Construction Court in 2011 between an architect suing for his fees and the architect’s client counterclaiming for damages for professional negligence.
Guy v Barnes, a hard fought case in the County Court between a builder suing for the balance of his contractual entitlement and his clients counterclaiming for damages for allegedly defective work.
