I have done many cases which would be described as “commercial”, some of which are about Sale of Goods.
There are two Sale of Goods cases that I focus on. Firstly, Clegg v Andersson in the Court of Appeal, in England. Secondly the Pyrite litigation in Ireland in the High Court and Supreme Court in Ireland.
Clegg was about an allegedly unsatisfactory yacht which the owner purported to reject over six months after he took delivery of it.
The Pyrite litigation in Ireland involved consideration of the Irish Sale of Goods Act (similar but not identical to the English version) and as to what was meant by merchantable quality and fitness for purpose.
My work includes two reported cases about the remuneration of foreign exchange dealers, one of which went to the Court of Appeal.
I have done cases about generators and whether they were satisfactory or fit for their purpose.
I have also done many cases about bonds and guarantees.
Examples of reported cases are:
- James Elliott Construction Ltd v Irish Asphalt  I ESC 68 (Irish Supreme Court)
- Mirador International LLC v MF Global UK Ltd  EWCA Civ 1662;  All ER (D) 142 (Dec), Court of Appeal  EWHC 683 (Comm) Commercial Court
