Most successful construction lawyers revealed

16 Jun 16 A legal analytics firm has studied three years of court cases in the Technology & Construction Court and named the barristers and solicitors’ firms with the best win ratio.

Over the last three years Hugh James Solicitors has had a 67% win rate in its appearances in the Technology & Construction Court, putting at the top of the list compiled by Premonition.

Ioan Prydderch, partner and head of construction at Hugh James said: “Being embroiled in court proceedings, whether a claimant or the defendant, is expensive, time consuming and stressful for everyone involved. This is very true for construction and engineering disputes where difficult legal and technical issues arise. We understand this and we work very hard with our clients and any wider team to ensure that the journey ends positively.”

Barrister Serena Cheng of Atkin Chambers has had a 100% win rate in her appearances in the court. She recently acted in Doosan Babcock v Comercializadora de Equipos y Materiales MABE, an application to restrain calls on a performance bond. The US $40m bond concerned the installation of boilers in a Brazilian power station.

Premonition also gave an honourable mention to Anneliese Day QC from 4 New Square who won eight out of her 10 appearances in the court.
