A German-owned roofing company has launched a multi-million euro legal action against Michael McNamara & Co, the building and contracting company owned by property developer Bernard McNamara.

Mero-Schmidlin, which has worked on a number of major projects in Ireland, has taken a High Court case against McNamara’s company, arising from a dispute between the two companies.

Mero-Schmidlin, which has its headquarters in Surrey in England, worked with McNamara on projects including the Fingal County Council offices in Blanchardstown, west Dublin.

The company lodged documents with the court in Dublin in recent weeks, and the matter is scheduled to come before the Commercial Court tomorrow morning.

The German company has retained Dublin law firm Compton Aylmer to handle the case.

Mero-Schmidlin specialises in steel and glass roofs, atriums and facades. It has also
worked on the MacDonagh Junction, the new €110 million city quarter in Kilkenny.
