Representing a property developer with a Judgement of £700,000

NDP has recently represented a successful property developer, a private individual, who had a Judgment registered against him 3 years ago for £700,000.00 and who now faced bankruptcy proceedings against him in respect of that debt.

NDP investigated the background to the case and successfully applied to the High Court to set aside that Judgment and thus reopen the claim, despite fierce opposition from the holder of the Judgment. NDP’s work went well beyond the conventional or expected work and involved the engagement of private investigators and disclosure applications against 3rd parties to achieve the desired result.

Intensive work undertaken by NDP since that Judgment was set aside, means that the client will likely not now face a Judgment sum at all and may indeed permit the client at the next hearing to recover his legal costs from the opponent.
