Andrew Grantham QC successfully appeared on behalf of the Defendant/Applicant the hearing of a 4 hour summary judgment application in a claim for damages for breach of contract and negligence valued at over £2,000,000.
Andrew was successful in demonstrating that there was no evidential basis whatsoever for the claims; that the claims were in large part statute-barred; that no duty of care was owed by the Defendant and that in any event the Claimants’ claims were barred by public policy and vast majority of the damages claimed was too remote.
The hearing was undertaken by means of Teams. Chambers organised for the hearing bundle, the skeletons and numerous authorities all to be uploaded to a Share-File facility. The hearing shows that a legally complex application can be undertaken by means of video conferencing provided that the necessary arrangements are made in advance for the efficient management of the hearing.
