Charles Pimlott acts in adjudication enforcement in the TCC which considers jurisdiction and breach of the rules of natural justice
In AECOM v Staptina  EWHC 723 (TCC), Mr Justice Fraser held that an adjudicator had not acted outside of her jurisdiction or in breach of the rules of natural justice by deciding how deductions for alleged defects should be assessed under the NEC Engineering and Construction Short Subcontract June 2005, with amendments September 2011.

Charles Pimlott acted for AECOM.
