Howard Colman, Oksana Howard and Adam Palmer have recently returned from Barcelona where they represented Colman Coyle at the annual IR Global conference.

The conference was a great success bringing together around 350 legal and financial professionals from around the globe.

This was Adam’s first IR conference as part of the Rising Stars programme and gave him a great opportunity to meet and develop connections with other young lawyers involved in international work.

A highlight of the conference for Colman Coyle was the award of the IR Global Member of the year to Howard after a vote of the whole IR Global membership of more than 1300 members.

For Oksana the conference was a great opportunity for her to strengthen relationships with existing members and make new connections through her role as a Committee Member of the M&A Committee.

Colman Coyle are pleased to have been members of IR Global since it’s inception and look forward to many more years working together.

Howard Colman and Ross Wilson of Colman Coyle are pleased to have acted for a large group of private flat owners and a housing charity in a claim in respect of various fire safety construction issues relating to two blocks of flats in North London.

The blocks were built by a major house builder, Bellway Homes, in or around 2011 and were sold with the benefit of NHBC insurance cover.

It became apparent that there were a number of problems with the construction, in particular compartmentation issues which posed a threat to the physical health and safety of the occupants and additionally meant that it was almost impossible for the owners to sell or remortgage their properties until the remedial works had been carried out.

Proceedings were commenced in the High Court against NHBC claiming the costs of the remedial work and damages.  NHBC joined Bellway into the proceedings.

The parties subsequently agreed to participate in a mediation which was held in London where they were able to reach an amicable settlement of the dispute.

Colman Coyle are currently instructed on a number of fire safety related matters. The law in this area is complex and subject to legislative and other changes.

If you are unfortunately affected by these sorts of issues, whether as freeholder, management company or lessee we will be happy to provide advice and assistance and you can contact Ross Wilson at ross.wilson@colmancoyle.com or Howard Colman at howard.colman@colmancoyle.com.

IR Global Member of the Year 2022

IR Global Member of the Year 2022

I am delighted that my partner, Howard Colman has been nominated as one of the three candidates to be the IR Global Member of the Year 2022.

Many members will know Howard well. He is one of the outstanding original members of IR Global and has attended more conferences than any other member! Below is his submission for the award.

In addition to being very active in networking and referral activities, I believe Howard has made a unique contribution to the overall success of IR. He has consistently come up with new initiatives, several of which are now regular features of the events.

Howard was the first to arrange pre-event dinners which now are a part of every conference. He arranged a memorable visit to the Royal Courts of Justice and Inns of Court in London for the Disputes Group. He has arranged and participated in numerous networking and social events with members and very recently has launched a new initiative for golfing members.

Whilst it goes without saying that all of the candidates merit their selection I really believe it is time that Howard’s contributions to IR were recognised and I urge as many of you as possible to vote for him.
