Notable Commercial Disputes cases

  • Contractual Dispute

    Successfully acting for a client in a claim brought against them in the Business and Property Court, seeking a declaration that the contract remained extant between the parties, stating the notices to complete served were invalid. The claim was high value and resulted in a successful summary judgment application together with damages and costs.

  • Lease Dispute

    Abi successfully settled a claim for a commercial tenant claiming a breach of lease where there was an express right of support arguing a derogation from grant and right to quiet enjoyment.

  • Farming Partnership Dispute

    Abi successfully advised on a complicated partnership dispute where relations had broken down between the family partners. The case was multi-faceted and included claims of proprietary estoppel. After a successful mediation the parties were able to avoid the dissolution of the partnership and continue to farm successfully.
