Chancery Litigation in Construction Dispute

Peak Construction (London) Ltd v Savva & Anor [2016] EWHC 1295 (Ch)

Mrs Justice Asplin, sitting in the Chancery Division, delivered judgment in the above litigation. The case concerned three interlocutory applications. Two of these applications raised difficult issues, including an application for an extension of time to file a defence where non-compliance with a freezing injunction was alleged. The application raised multiple issues concerning adjournments; extensions of time; bank statements; compliance; costs; default judgments; penal notices; time limits; and unless orders. The Court granted the Applicant an extension of time to file a defence. Arfan Khan appeared for the Applicant who was granted the extensions.
