On Wednesday 4 November 2015, the Supreme Court gave judgment in the combined landmark cases of Cavendish Square Holding BV v Talal El Makdessi and ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis  UKSC 67.
These appeals gave the Supreme Court the first opportunity to review the law on penalties since the famous case of Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co Ltd v New Garage & Motor Co. Ltd  A.C. 847 decided almost exactly 100 years ago.
John de Waal QC, David Lewis and Ryan Hocking from Hardwicke acted on this case pro bono for the Appellant Mr Beavis.
