London, 9th November 2011: Venal & Grabbit welcome the decision of the Supreme Court in Jones v Kernott today. We have always been concerned that the interpretation of the Court of Appeal would discourage litigation, by making people think that they could not argue with what the deeds say. Happily, that will no longer be the case.
Senior Partner Edgar Venal commented: "This is marvellous news, and should open up the floodgates of litigation, with every Tom, Dick and Harry (or should I say "Thomasina, Richenda and Henrietta"?) arguing the toss over what they said (or didn't say) and did (or didn't do) throughout their relationships, to change their 'common intentions'. We are expecting a deluge of new business, and are gearing up accordingly."
