In February 2018, we reported on the important judgement in Grove Developments Limited v S&T (UK) Limited (2018). As set out in our review of the judgment, the judgment confirmed that a party does have the right to adjudicate on the “true” value of an interim application where there is either no Payment / Pay Less Notice or the relevant notice is deficient in some way.

As anticipated, the first instance judgment was appealed by the contractor, S&T, and the Court of Appeal judgment has been handed down today.
