Was there a binding agreement to settle? Gibbs v Lakeside Developments Ltd


Arnold J held that there was no binding agreement to settle an appeal. The compromise sum had been agreed but the Respondent had not agreed the date for payment as proposed by the Appellant. The Respondent in proposing a different date for payment was in fact making a counter-offer which the Appellant did not accept.

Gary Blaker QC appeared for the successful Respondent.
