Reclaiming ADA court costs from developers

One of my clients has just settled an ADA case for quite a substantial amount of money and is now looking to reclaim that from the developer. Both the client and developer are UK-based but the case related to one of their US websites for a physical premises in New York. Does anyone know of any UK case law or precedents for reclaiming these costs?

Although the contract with the developers did not mention accessibility, our client is of the view that the developers should be aware of accessibility legislation and should design websites to be compliant. The developers are refusing to pay. For context, our client is large enough to sue the developers into oblivion if they wanted.
