Abstract

Much academic ink has been spilt over the speeches of the House of Lords in Linden Gardens Trust Ltd v. Lenesta Sludge Disposals Ltd and its sequel, Alfred McAlpine Construction Ltd v. Panatown Ltd . Seemingly none, however, has been spent so far on the Court of Appeal’s decision in Offer-Hoar v. Larkstore Ltd (Technotrade Ltd, Part 20 defendant). While Offer-Hoar is not concerned with the “black-hole” conundrum that so exercised their Lordships in Linden Gardensand Panatown , its clarification as to what precisely passes by a legal assignment of a cause of action may have wider implications on certain other developments hinted at in cases as diverse as Barbados Trust Co Ltd v. Bank of Zambia and Golden Strait Corp v. Nippon Y.K.K. (“The Golden Victory”).
