Our client Timothy was a formworker for a company with whom he had done sub-contracting formwork and steel fixing work on a residential job site in the Sydney Metropolitan Area that worth almost half a million dollars.

Timothy had completed the work and had paid his workers out of his own pocket, but the main contractor refused to pay our client for the final stages of the work. Timothy was left out of pocket and came to One Law for assistance.

After initial investigations, we found out that Timothy did not have the required license and qualifications to be carrying out the work they were doing for the contractor. To make matters worse, Timothy was sued by the contractor, who alleged defective and incomplete work, in the amount of approximately $83,000.00.

The team of Commercial lawyers at One Law, were able to successfully negotiate a lump sum settlement of $35,000.00 in favour of our client and the court case was withdrawn by the contractor.
