Consultant Cundall is suing a hotel group for failing to pay it for its work on a luxury hotel near St Paul's cathedral in London.

Cundall's M&E contract for the 450-bedroom Grange St Paul's hotel was due to terminate in April last year, says a High Court writ. Cundall claims that at this point hotel group Global Grange was due to pay it £122,946 plus VAT, which was the balance of its £572,920 fee. However, it says Global Grange failed to pay any of this sum, so it now suing the hotelier for £144,461.55. The hotel is due to due to open later this year.
