Complex design fault claim

Advising a European underwriter of a major French motor vehicle manufacturer, in a significant and complex design fault claim brought against the motor vehicle manufacturer in the Supreme Court of NSW and later the High Court. The case involved jurisdictional issues, international law, and evidence from international experts in motor vehicle design across three continents. We successfully defended the claim before a confidential commercial settlement was reached, saving the insurer over $5 million.
