Success for Lawrence McDonald at Court of Appeal

December 12, 2016

Lawrence McDonald from Exchange Chambers has successfully acted for his client at both the court of first instance and the Court of Appeal.

In the case of Armchair Answercall Limited (the appellant) and People in Mind Limited (the respondent), Lawrence McDonald acted for the respondent.  The appellant was represented by a silk.

Armchair Answercall Limited had claimed that they were excused from paying sums due to People in Mind Limited under a contract on the basis that the contract had been frustrated. Their argument was rejected by the court and the appeal was dismissed.

Lawrence McDonald was instructed by Nick Davies from Seth Lovis & Co.
