Multiplex Construction Europe Ltd (formerly Brookfield Multiplex Construction Europe Ltd) v Dunne

Building contract – Contractor. The claimant company's application for summary judgment against the defendant, D, succeeded. The Technology and Construction Court held that the obligation on D to repay money advanced to his company in the event of insolvency was a primary obligation upon him, and the contract was a contract of indemnity. The Insolvency Rules did not apply, because it was D's company and not D himself that was the insolvent party.
