In the fourth of our Litigation podcast series, Zahira Hussain looks at a recent High Court decision which serves as a timely reminder that, whilst a contract may be oral in whole or part, contractual terms are best fully recorded in writing at the time of the contract. Failure to do so can give rise to grave uncertainties.
The High Court’s decision in Stonard v Green Shoots Capital UK Ltd also serves as a reminder that what parties put in writing in the aftermath of agreeing a contract is, generally, extraneous.
Where contracting parties are considering entering into an agreement, they should ensure that the terms of the agreement are all recorded in writing. If you are considering entering into an agreement and would like advice on the contractual terms, or if you find yourself embroiled in a contractual dispute, please do not hesitate to contact Zahira Hussain.
