Not aware of that tbh but that would be different to planning stage.

It would, but it would also suggest that whatever Abacus did (which might include not triple-glazing) was inadequate if there's any interest in maintaining night time events in the local area.

Possibly although i was at the Spotted Dog about a month ago for a late night event (until just before 1am). It might have been, without knowing the specifics, that the complainant had a window open for instance.

I've been looking into the background of Court Collaboration.

There are two Directors

Anthony Patrick McCourt (hence Court collaboration)

and

Simon John McNally.


I found nothing on McCourt, he is squeeky clean, involved with the Cube and many other companies.

however I did find this High Court Case judgment that mentioned Mcnally

https://7kbw.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Orb.pdf

I wish to emphasise that McNally is not the defendant in the case, however he is linked to it as the business advisor of the defendant and is mentioned on the opening page as a third party. The case involves 10 of millions of pounds in companies based in the Isle of Man and Jersey and series of claims and counter claims and a complex web of companies.

It made my head hurt reading all this.

Devonhurst Investements Limited is mentioned in the legal document that is linked to Court Collaboration via McNallys directorship.

I noted that

Devonhurst properties LLP has the same business address as Court Collaboration. 85-89 Colmore Row, Birmingham, B3 2BB

Should we be worried ?

I'm sure it's nothing however I would rather expose any crooks sooner rather than later, the last thing Digbeth needs is another St Annes Court. Small amount of steelwork up, investors fleeced of their deposits and the developer off into the sunset.

That said the pdf judgment of the case reads like a pretty realistic crime novel, just a few actual quotes from the fraud case.


"A £2.5 million yacht called Babylon"
"Holding Companies in British Virgin Islands"
"A Maltese company called Aimos"
"Holding Companies held in the Isle of Man"
"holding Companies in Jersey"
"A company in the Marshal Islands"
"fraud of £35 million funds missing from Izodia plc"
"Hotel groups held in holding companies"

I think many of the big conglomerate's have been doing exactly the same for many many eons, and the rest of it, so no surprise really.

This is a quote from the honorable judge Mr Justice Mostyn who describes Simon Mcnally and his partner as

"treacherous former “front-men” Simon Cooper and Simon McNally."

That's the same Simon Mcnally who is a director of Court Collaboration.

just saying !

Sorry to break it to you but it gets worse.

https://www.casemine.com/judgement/u...d03e7f57eaa46a

In this case Simon McNally is one of the defendants in a shipping deal gone wrong and concerns a missing 7 million dollars that was paid by a Miss Yildiz. The ship in question was a oil drilling ship "The Dalian Developer" and was in the process of being purchased for a cool $350 million dollars.

McNally was part of the team called Global Marine Solicitors that were to facilitate the deal. To cut a long story short, the deal is not completed in time and the deal falls through but the 7 million down-payment towards insuring the deal is not returned. Simon McNally and Co are sued by the purchaser for the return of the 7 million for alleged fraudulent transactions.

He manages to avoid the charges through the use of case law. One of the defendants was accused of spending 80,000 of this money on a Bentley. I don't think the 7 mill is ever recovered. The Judge describes it as very sad and tragic case.

These are the words of the Miss Yildiz in describing the deal where she lost the 7 million dollars.

"the whole transaction was a fraud and that the ultimate aim of the whole deal was either a bank fraud or other fraud or to get at my professional indemnity insurance or both. I am now convinced that what happened was effectively a set up an elaborate deception worked upon me by Global Marine and its associates"

Would you trust Court Collaboration with your 50K deposit?

They’ve already delivered schemes in the past why the concern all of a sudden?
