Local cases

Due to its close proximity with Gloucester, Cheltenham’s legal claim to fame relates to the case of Hadely v Baxendale in 1854, which laid down the contractual rules for calculating damages. This case established that where a party enters into and breaks a contract, the other party should only receive damages for consequences that might reasonably have been contemplated by both parties at the time that the contract was made.

This case has set the foreseeability test for consequential damages that has been followed in virtually every Anglo-American jurisdiction, and solicitors in Cheltenham and solicitors all over the UK still apply this principle today.

Whether you are after top-end solicitors, cheap solicitors or no-win, no-fee solicitors, Contact Law can help. For business, conveyancing, commercial, criminal, employment, redundancy, unfair dismissal, defamation, family or divorce solicitors, Contact Law has the right solicitors for you.
