International / offshore, Commercial disputes | Court of Appeal, Trinidad & TobagoTuesday 12 January 2021

Estate Management and Business Development Co Ltd v Namalco Construction Services Ltd & Ors

On 11 January 2021 David Phillips KC appeared before the Court of Appeal in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, in the latest round of the hard-fought Contractors’ Conspiracy claims.  David had successfully resisted the Contractors’ strike-out and related applications, Mr Justice Aboud having handed down a 122 page judgment in August 2020.  Amongst the many grounds of appeal the Contractors challenged the adequacy of the pleaded case on unlawful means conspiracy, and boldly challenged the existence of the tort of an unlawful means conspiracy in Trinidad & Tobago.  Further written submissions are to be filed within the next month, after which a reserved judgment will be delivered.  A report of the hearing on 11 January 2021 can be found here.
