  • Bunge SA v Nidera BV (formerly Nidera Handelscompagnie BV) [2015] (damages following termination for repudiation),
  • Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board [2015] (application of the Bolam test)
  • Spar Shipping AS v Grand China Logistics Holding (Group) Co Ltd (The Spar Capella) [2016] (contrast between express termination rights and common law rights to terminate).
  • Urban 1 (Blonk Street) Ltd v Ayres [2014] (analysis of notices to complete)
  • Paciocco v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (2016) and Cavendish Square Holding BV v Makdessi [2016] (doctrine of penalties)
  • Electricity Generation Corporation v Woodside Energy Ltd (2014) (standard of duty applicable under a reasonable endeavours obligation).
