Australian construction giant Multiplex has won its bitter battle with steel contractor Cleveland Bridge over work at the new Wembley Stadium, with Mr Justice Jackson ruling the Multiplex had acted legally.
Jackson J this morning told the Technology and Construction Court Multiplex had acted lawfully and Cleveland Bridge was in breach of contract by walking off the site in August 2004.
Four New Square head of chambers Roger Stewart QC was instructed by Clifford Chance partner Alex Panayides for Multiplex in its claim for £38m in damages.
Walker Morris partner Martin Scott instructed Matrix Chambers' Hugh Tomlinson QC to argue Cleveland Bridge's counter-claim of £22m.
Tomlinson claimed Multiplex had formed an "Armageddon plan" to oust Cleveland Bridge from the project, but Jackson J this morning said: "Multiplex's strategy, while ruthless, was law."
