James M. Turner QC and Paul Toms appeared on behalf of the former owner of the super yacht, 4 YOU, successfully resisting an appeal by brokers against Males J's dismissal of their claim for commission on its sale.
An ex tempore judgment was handed down by the Court of Appeal on 11 February 2016. Ruth Hosking was involved at an earlier stage in the proceedings.
The appeal concerned the scope of authority of a chartering broker and effective cause in the context of claims for agents' commission.
