Our Experience

Successfully representing and defending a car park systems contractor (“Contractor”) against a claim brought by a third party for alleged trespass over a landscape area of a commercial development in Petaling Jaya. The Joint Management Body had engaged the Contractor to install car park systems on the landscape area, the ownership of which was being disputed between the JMB and the purported owner at the time. The High Court held that the purported owner had no cause of action and locus standi to bring a claim against the Contractor and the suit was struck out.
