Success in the Court of Appeal




Simon Gorton QC and Charles Prior, instructed by Thompsons LLP Manchester, have been successful in resisting an employer's appeal in the Court of Appeal in Park Cakes Ltd v Shumba  in which the Court of Appeal have been given helpful guidance on when contractual rights may arise through custom and practice.  This case will be regarded as the definitive case on when such rights might be said to have arisen.
