Counsel on the Couch Live – A briefing on the COVID rent cases

Loading Events

The PLA in conjunction with Falcon Chambers are hosting a special live webinar to discussing the two much anticipated High Court decisions reported in recent days of Bank of New York Mellon (International) Ltd v Cine-UK Ltd and Commerz Real Investmentgesellschaft mbH v TFS Stores Ltd, the first decisions of the pandemic dealing with commercial rent claims when businesses have been shut due to COVID-19 issues.

Guy Fetherstonhaugh QC, Gary Cowen QC and Elizabeth Fitzgerald of Falcon Chambers, who acted for the successful landlords in the cases, will answer questions put to them by Mathew Ditchburn (PLA Vice Chair) about the cases, the wider impact of the summary judgment decisions on other rent claims making their way through the courts and whether commercial tenants who decide not to pay can no longer ‘plead the pandemic’.

You will also have an opportunity to submit your questions for Guy, Gary and Elizabeth .

All members of the PLA are welcome to attend this free webinar.

Registration is essential.
