Technology Integration Dispute Success


Technology Integration Dispute victory for our client in counterclaim with significant damages awarded and 85% of costs recovered.

What happened?

A claim was brought against our clients concerning work undertaken for the supply and installation of integrated technology systems at our client’s home.  The claim was for alleged unpaid invoices of £112,477.18.  Our client made a counterclaim in respect of the quality of work carried out, payment of VAT and issues with the invoices.

What did Blackstone do?

We acted on behalf of our clients from the start of the legal process, namely from pre-action correspondence to the end of the trial.   We gathered evidence to support our client’s counterclaim, drafted the defence, counterclaim and witness statements and rigorously defended them throughout the proceedings.  An expert was also instructed to attend the trial.

What was the outcome?

Our client succeeded in their Defence and also recovered significant costs from the claimant based on their counterclaim against the claimant and recovered net damages in the sum of £16,640.59.  In addition, our clients were awarded around 85% of their costs.

This is now a reported case and judgment can be found here.
