Predicted MAK legal costs mount

  • Comment
A legal battle between the now-defunct MAK Architects and developer Winterdome is expected to cost at least £120,000, the AJ can reveal.

A leading legal cost expert has claimed that the price of the action will extend well into six figures when it kicks off on 20 February 2006.

Winterdome is believed to be looking to obtain around £1 million for alleged negligence by the architecture firm over a scheme on London's Great Pulteney Street.

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.

Their trial has been pencilled in for twenty days at the High Court's Technology and Construction Court, thought to be a lengthy amount of time for contests of this nature.

Both parties and their lawyers refused to comment.
