Court of Appeal decision in Dream Doors Ltd v Martin Lodge


The Court of Appeal has given judgment in Dream Doors Ltd v Martin Lodge [2012] EWCA Civ 1556. The Court held that in considering a claim for rectification of a franchise agreeement the judge had erred in ignoring evidence as to the wider backgroud leading up to the production and execution of the agreement and instead looking only at the circumstances immediately surrounding its signing. Alexander Goold (led by Nigel Jones QC) appeared for the successful appellant.
