High Court "Unjust Enrichment" Success for Business & Property Barrister


Head of Trinity’s Business and Property Group, barrister Simon Goldberg represented the successful Claimant in Dowman Imports Ltd v 2Toobz Limited [2020] EWHC 291 (Comm).

In upholding Dowman’s claim in unjust enrichment and dismissing 2Toobz’s counterclaim for damages for breach of contract, HHJ Russen QC sitting in the Circuit Commercial Court in Bristol conducted a useful survey of the principles concerning claims for unjust enrichment based upon the provision of services in expectation of a contract which does not materialise, and the scope of the subjective devaluation defence. Simon was instructed by McDaniel & Co Solicitors.

Simon, who is also a Recorder (Civil & Crime), is regularly recognised in the leading legal directories, recent entries include:
"A formidable opponent." "His approach to, knowledge of, and experience in complex matters is absolutely terrific." "Experienced senior junior with the capacity to absorb and advise upon large volumes of information often in urgent circumstances." "He is a highly intelligent barrister who has the courage of his convictions." Chambers & Partners 2020.
"An excellent advocate who can think on his feet." Legal 500 2020.
