Grimshaw & Co argue further appeal before Supreme Court28 Mar 12
In 2010 Grimshaw & Co acted for the Sunset/Byron apartment owners in successfully opposing Council appeals to the Supreme Court. In March 2012 Grimshaw & Co again appeared in the Supreme Court, this time representing unit owners in a large apartment/hotel development. At issue was whether the Council's duty of care may extend to units intended to be used as hotel rooms and to non-residential property generally. The Supreme Court's decision will have a significant bearing on Council liability in relation to non-residential buildings suffering from leaky building syndrome.
