Pritesh Rathod successful in High Court trial (Scaddon v Morgan (2017))

Pritesh Rathod successfully represented the Claimant in a High Court trial relating to negligent treatment given to her by a Consultant Gynaecologist.  Mrs Scaddon proved that at a private gynaecology appointment, Mr Morgan negligently failed to see that she had in fact suffered a prolapsed uterine fibroid.  This was not diagnosed until around 7 months later, whereupon Mrs Scaddon underwent a hysterectomy to remove the fibroid.  The Court was required to consider evidence about the doubling times of cancerous and non-cancerous tumours, before going on to find that it was likely that the fibroid had prolapsed at the time of Mrs Scaddon's private consultation and so Mr Morgan should have seen it if exercising reasonable care.

Jeremy Hyam QC successful in Court of Appeal VAT case concerning Talacre 'carve out'

Jeremy Hyam QC has successfully defended HMRC in this important appeal concerning the circumstances when a member state can carve out “concrete and specific” parts of a wider supply, and apply different rates across a CPP single supply: see (Case C-251/05) Talacre Beach Caravan Sales Ltd v Customs and Excise Comrs  [2006] STC.  The issue in the case was whether Parliament intended that the ‘concrete and specific’ supply of fuel (electricity) for static caravans in the course of the wider supply of serviced holiday accommodation attracted the reduced rate. The Court of Appeal unanimously rejected the Appellant’s arguments that that was Parliament’s intention for the reasons given by HMRC.
