Fergal Maguire - Cleaver Fulton Rankin

Within: Dispute resolution

Cleaver Fulton Rankin ’s ‘excellent’ litigation team is ‘responsive, flexible, accommodating, enthusiastic, hardworking and possesses a strong commercial sense’. Practice head Patrick Fleming (‘shrewd and approachable’) is leading advice to the Northern Ireland Housing Executive in an ongoing dispute brought by a contractor concerning an asbestos surveying services contract. In another mandate, Aaron Moore , who is well known for his expertise in property matters, represented the Charles Shiels Charity in a claim against the project architect and building contractor responsible for the design, contract management, redevelopment and refurbishment of 18 charitable houses in Northern Ireland. Fergal Maguire (‘his communication skills are exceptional and his advice is meticulous, clear and easy to follow’) is acting for Victoria Housing Estates in a dispute with three former directors concerning alleged misappropriation of funds worth £20m; this matter is complex as some of the funds were allegedly diverted to a number of associated companies set up by one of the directors and as the client is now registered as a charity, the diverting of assets could be considered actionable. Managing director Jonathan Forrester (‘driven and pragmatic’)  advises on high-value construction disputes, and Michael King has expertise in intellectual property disputes.
