Court of Appeal ruling on injunctions to prevent breach of contract
27 May 2014
Court of Appeal delivers landmark ruling on the availability of injunctions to prevent breach of contract.
In a landmark decision on injunctions the Court of Appeal has confirmed that the existence of a contractual clause which has the effect of limiting or excluding the damages available for breach may be taken into account by the court on applications for injunctive relief when assessing whether damages are an adequate remedy in the American Cyanamid sense.
Lewis Silkin acted for the successful party AB, both at first instance and at the Court of Appeal.
