Galtrade v BP – When can a cargo buyer reject delivery? | Case by Case (Ep. 10)

When faced with a breach of contract an innocent party will often want to know if they have a right to terminate and walk away from the agreement, or whether they must continue with the contract and limit themselves to a recovery in damages.

This is a tightrope for the parties and their lawyers. Does a breach of that specific term give a right to terminate? Alternatively, is this breach sufficiently significant to give that party a right to terminate?

The Galtrade decision looks at both questions, and Luke and Calum consider it in today’s podcast.
