Securing £0.25 million savings in a supply contract dispute

John acted for a local authority in a case involving a supplier who claimed numerous and significant breaches of a supply contract by the local authority.

John successfully persuaded the Court that an on-going contract with the drinks supplier was null and void, despite the claimant arguing that the contract was valid, and on-going. In bringing the ‘contract’ to an end, the authority was saved just under £250,000 in costs and future expenditure.
