ABSTRACT
This article reports that Kendall Freeman last week saw its right to light upheld in the High Court, but was unable to prevent Land Securities PLC from building opposite its Fetter Lane offices. The firm sought an injunction in November against the property company after it emerged that Land Securities was planning to erect an 18-storey building in Fetter Lane. In a judgment handed down by Justice Peter Smith, Kendall Freeman and its landlord were awarded damages and 50,000 pounds in costs. But Land Securities is still able to proceed with the new building as the firm failed in its application for an injunction.
