I am fascinated by this problem you are experiencing...
How much is it going to cost to remedy the problem...? or... is it something that can't be fixed... have you had more than one engineering firm look at it...
I'm just curious...
Let us know what happens...
Emaar lost at least $687 million because of John Laing (Probably $2 billion lost). However, they have many more billions to spare, so don't feel too sorry for Emaar.
Emaar is still in business building the worlds tallest tower in Dubai and many other projects.
Assets are not liabilities. They are exact opposites. You are hoping to find some company that assumed Laings liabities.
The new owner(s) of any of Laings old assets want nothing to do with your claim. If the bankruptcy had not already been discharged, you could conceivably put your claim into the bankruptcy court.
Speaking of insurance.. If John Laing bought a long term construction defect policy ten years ago that is in still in effect there is a remote chance it could be a remedy. Yeah, I know that is unlikely, but such policies did exist at one time. They were called 2-10 Home Warranties. But, just like your homeowners insurance policy, they probably have a clause that excludes your specific problem. That is the way of most insurance companies: collect premiums, deny claims.
The cost to litigate will probably not be worthwhile - even with a significant claim.
Check with a local law firm - and see if any of them will take the case without an up front fee. The call this taking the case on contingency.
If someone is willing to take the case - it may have merit. Otherwise - you are probably stuck,
