Supporting your ambitions
Chris formed part of the team who successfully defended a private criminal prosecution for statutory noise nuisance under the Environmental Protection Act. Chris and the team acted for the defendant, a demolition contractor working on a high-value development in Mayfair. The matter proceeded to a six-day trial. The development was valued at £6 billion and, had the prosecutor been successful, it would have put the demolition on hold for a number of months at a cost to the client of £300,000 per week, as well as having wide-ranging ramifications for the demolition industry.
What do others say?
Chris is often commended by clients for his "clear concise advice". Chris and the team were recently praised for successfully acting for a university client in its claim for possession against students who occupied a key administrative building as part of a protest, and for expediting that court process to ensure minimal disruption.
