Developer McKillen suffers fresh setback in legal battle with Barclay brothers
PROPERTY developer Paddy McKillen has suffered another defeat in the British courts in his lengthy legal battle with the billionaire Barclay brothers over the control of three landmark London hotels.
The Supreme Court in London has rejected a bid by the businessman to appeal a decision against him by another court over the future of Coroin, the €1.2bn company which owns Claridge’s, the Connaught and the Berkeley hotels.
The latest ruling from the courts closes another door for Mr McKillen in his marathon legal action against David and Frederick Barclay, the owners of the Ritz hotel and the Telegraph newspaper group.
The two sides have been locked in confrontation across the British legal system since last year over the control of the three prestigious hotels.
