The wrangle over the refurbishment of an office block in London's Soho was put to bed shortly before Christmas, Archer's lawyer confirmed this morning.
The news will be welcomed by Winterdome, as the court case would have cost them in the region of £120,000 if it had proceeded as planned.
Winterdome was believed to be looking to obtain around £1 million for alleged negligence by MAK over a scheme on London's Great Pulteney Street, now occupied by Microsoft.
The claim was filed a short time after MAK Architects went into liquidation in April 2004. MAK directors Ken Mackay and Stephen Archer now run their own practices. MAK was born out of the demise of Harper Mackay.
