DRAFTING: The letter of the law

12 April 2017  

Brioney Thomas and Grace Dawson Stephens weigh up a recent decision on penalties

Practitioners should take note of the recent application of the law on penalties in Vivienne Westwood Ltd v Conduit Street Development Ltd [2017]. Although a first instance decision, the case provides a welcome indication of how the courts are likely to use the restated principles set out in Cavendish Square Holding BV v El Makdessi and ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis [2015].
