Timothy Dutton KC

Call: 1985 Silk: 2013

Tim is recognised as a leading property silk, and acts in both contentious and non-contentious matters.

A significant proportion of Tim’s cases are commercial chancery cases with a “property flavour”. Examples from his reported cases include KPMG v. Network Rail (CA) (claim for “rectification by construction” and for rectification in equity – the case was an important pre-curser to the Supreme Court’s decision in Chartbrook v. Persimmon Homes); Meretz v. ACP (ChD/CA) (multi-faceted claim, including claims in conspiracy, and procuring breach of contract); FoodCo v. Henry Boot Developments (alleged mis-selling of shopping centre and effect of non-reliance clauses); Williams v. Redcard (execution requirements of sections 43 and 44 of the Companies Act 2006), and Re Blenheim Leisure Ltd (CA) (whether a landlord has locus standi to oppose an application to restore a company to the register).
