Waterman fine tunes counter-claim

Pete Waterman’s lawyers are working against the clock to draw up the music mogul’s counterclaim in BDO Stoy Hayward’s £525,000 fee dispute

His representatives will have until the end of the month to fine-tune their
response to BDO’s writ under legal rules.

‘You have 14 days to acknowledge that the writ has been served against you
and a further 14 days to present a defence or a counterclaim,’ said Richard
Blann of City law firm Norton Rose.

BDO served a writ against Waterman last month alleging that his companies
owed the mid-tier firm £525,000 in unpaid fees and interest, but the producer is
gearing up to deliver his counter strike.

If the deadline is missed his lawyers will have to apply for an extension
from the courts. ‘This matter is now in the hands of the lawyers,’ said a
spokeswoman.
