The following Dispute Resolution practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The general principles applicable in contractual dispute cases pertaining to formation, interpretation and remedies for breach are relatively well established, see:
Forming enforceable contracts—overview
Terminating contracts—how and when a contract ends—overview
Contractual breach damages and remedies—overview
And, while it is critical that each case is analysed on its own merits and its own unique set of factual and legal circumstances, it is of use to understand the operation of the key legal principles in their factual context. This Practice Note therefore includes some of the more illustrative decisions in the field of contractual disputes. The decisions listed below are those dating from 1 January 2020 onwards (earlier key decisions are included elsewhere within the guidance in the above subtopics). We do not include every decision but only those from which interesting points of illustration arise. The decisions listed below include full links to the judgment (and, where available, our News Analysis of the judgment).
