Assisted in the representation of the Respondents in this landmark contract law matter before the Court of Appeal. After hearing parties, the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal, with costs awarded to the Respondents. One of the main issues considered by the five-judge coram was the effect of no oral modification clauses (NOM clauses). The Court of Appeal expressed that NOM clauses raise a rebuttable presumption that in the absence of an agreement in writing, there would be no variation.
