Transferred Intent in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Plevin v Paragon Personal Finance Ltd (No 2)
    • Supreme Court
    • 29 Marzo 2017

    Mrs Plevin entered into a CFA with her original solicitors, Miller Gardner, on 19 June 2008. Subsequently there were two technical changes of solicitor. They were technical because they both arose out of organisational changes within the same firm. In July 2009, the partners of Miller Gardner reconstituted themselves as an LLP.

    It is common ground that the CFA was in principle assignable. Paragon's argument is based on the terms to the two successive transfer agreements made between the successive Miller Gardner entities.

    It is right to add that even if the argument were sound, it would lead nowhere. Shortly after each transfer, on 30 July 2009 and 30 April 2012, the new firm wrote to Mrs Plevin informing her about the change, referring to the CFA and saying that they would "continue to represent you on the same terms and conditions as previously." Mrs Plevin plainly assented to that by continuing to instruct them.

  • R v Knowles and Others
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 05 Febrero 2015

    In considering that wider question the matters to which a judge will invariably have to have regard to include (1) the extent to which the offender needs treatment for the mental disorder from which the offender suffers, (2) the extent to which the offending is attributable to the mental disorder, (3) the extent to which punishment is required and (4) the protection of the public including the regime for deciding release and the regime after release.

  • Attorney General's Reference (No. 3 of 1994)
    • House of Lords
    • 24 Julio 1997

    The courts have always firmly resisted attempts to obtain the answer to academic questions, however useful this might appear to be. The peculiarity of a reference under the Act of 1972 is that it is not a step in a dispute, so that in one sense the questions referred are invariably academic.

  • R (H) v Secretary of State for the Home Department and another; R (on the application of IH) v Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 05 Diciembre 2001

    It was still contended that the Claimant has been detained in breach of Article 5(1) and 5(4), but as an illustration of the alleged incompatibility of section 73(2) and/or (7) of the Act with Article 5(1) and (4) of the Convention.

  • Svenska Petroleum Exploration AB v Government of the Republic of Lithuania [QBD (Comm)]
    • Queen's Bench Division (Commercial Court)
    • 04 Noviembre 2005

    Moreover, even if it were necessary to so, recourse may only be to the "rules of international business activities generally accepted in the petroleum industry". Furthermore, recourse is to be had to such rules only insofar as they do not contradict the laws of Lithuania. The State did not, in any event, adduce any evidence of what were the "rules of international business activities generally accepted in the petroleum industry".
