Nicholas Baatz QC and Nicholas Collings instructed on one of the “Top 20 case of 2014” as published in The Lawyer

7th Jan 2014

Nicholas Baatz QC and Nicholas Collings of Atkin Chambers are instructed by DAC Beachcroft for Keller in Accolade Wines v Volkerfitzpatrick (2) Volkervessels (3) Goodman (4) Keller (5) Twintec (6) GJ3&4. The case has been identified by The Lawyer as one of the top 20 cases to watch in 2014.

The case is set to be heard in October 2014 over 40 days in the Technology and Construction Court by Mr Justice Edwards-Stuart.

This £170m case was brought by Accolade Wines against the company that built its bottling plant five years ago. In one of the biggest cases to hit the Technology and Construction Court in 2014, the company will claim that the concrete floor slab of the warehouse had settled into the ground, making the warehouse unusable. The company is bringing a property damage and business interruption claim against the defendant, arguing that it has incurred hefty costs after being forced to move out of the warehouse. It will raise complex legal issues in relation to causation, rectification and the construction of warranties, as well as complex technical issues.
