INSIGHTS BY PENNINGTONS MANCHES: Angry endings

02 December 2016  

Clare Arthurs and Phillip D’Costa highlight recent case law on frustration

Frustration: the feeling of being upset or annoyed as a result of being unable to change or achieve something. An apposite word for many in this most capricious of years. Legally speaking, a contract is frustrated when something happens which makes it impossible or illegal to perform the contract, or which changes the parties’ contractual rights and obligations so fundamentally that it would be unjust to make the parties perform them.
