Gary Lewis succeeds in the Court of Appeal

Following on from Gary Lewis' recent successes in the Court of Appeal cases of City West Housing Trust -v- Massey and Manchester and District Housing Association -v- Roberts [2016] EWCA Civ 704 on 26th July 2016, Lord Justice Briggs granted permission to appeal in respect of a commercial case on which Gary is instructed by the appellant by Coupe Bradbury Solicitors.

The appeal, set to be heard later in the year, concerns the interpretation and effect of a compromise agreement and will consider the legal framework relating to compromises with one of several co-debtors with a particular focus on those cases where the creditor seeks to rely upon an implied reservation of rights against the co-debtors.
