Blue v Ashley

Contract – Contract for services. The Commercial Court dismissed the claimant consultant's claim for a bonus that, he claimed, it had been agreed that he would receive if the shares of Sports Direct rose above £8 each. Although the defendant director had said during a conversation in a pub that he would pay the claimant £15m if he could get the Sports Direct share price to £8 per share, that would not reasonably have been understood as a serious offer capable of creating a legally binding contract.
