Construction company directors beware! Agency law may not protect you.

Construction company directors beware! Agency law may not protect you.


CategoryNews Author Anthony Edwards Date

Anthony Edwards successfully argued for the claimant in the High Court TCC that the laws of agency did not protect a particular director of a construction limited company. The Judge, Coppel Q.C, found that Mr Foster contracted in his personal capacity. Mr Foster structured numerous limited companies under a brand name Foster & Co. and failed to properly inform the Claimant of any of his limited companies. Instead, his conduct was such as to lead the claimant into thinking he was contracting in a personal capacity under the trading name of Foster & Co. see Lumley v Foster & Co Group Ltd & Ors [2021] TCC.
