Trinity Commercial & Employment Law Barrister in Court of Appeal


Trinity Employment LawBusiness and Property barrister, Richard Stubbs appeared for the appellant in the Court of Appeal case of Allen (trading as David Allen Chartered Accountants) v Dodd & Co Ltd [2020] EWCA Civ 258, [2020] 2 WLR 1070.

The appeal involved inducement to breach a contract, having succeeded against the former employee but not the new employer at trial. The appeal was ultimately unsuccessful, however the law regarding what legal advice is required to support a suggestion that there was insufficient knowledge to have induced a breach of contract has been clarified by the Court of Appeal in what will be an important case on inducement to breach a contract in the future. Richard was instructed by Weightmans LLP Solicitors on behalf of the appellant.

As well as being an accredited Civil and Commercial Mediator and member of Trinity's Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) team, Richard is on the Government Legal Department's Regional Panel of Counsel and is a member of the Football Association’s National Panel of Chairmen for Anti-Discrimination Cases.
