Parker Lloyd Capital Ltd (formerly Parker Lloyd Capital plc) v Edwardian Group Ltd

Contract – Intention to create legal relationship. No contract had been made between the claimant and the defendant such that the defendant was liable to pay fees to the claimant for seeking to find and introducing to the defendant a funder able and willing to provide long-term finance in the sum of approximately £250m. The Queen's Bench Division held, amongst other things, that not only had the alleged contract not been in writing but after the meeting where the alleged contract had been orally made, neither party had acted as one would have expected them to have acted if a contract had been made. The claimant's claim would be dismissed.
