  • Gibbs v Leeds United: £330,000 for football club's breach of contract

    Date:
    25 July 2016

    The High Court held that the presence of commercial exit discussions between a football club and an assistant manager during which he stated that he was prepared to leave did not prevent the club from committing breach of contract. Gurpreet Duhra and Germaine Cowen-Machin explain this employment case, in which the High Court made an award of more than £330,000.
