Jack Macaulay

Call 2009

"Jack roots out the nub of a case and deploys a strategic and commercial approach to litigation."
(Legal 500, 2022)

Commercial Law and General Common Law

Much of Jack’s work is based, at heart, on an understanding of the underlying contractual, tortious, and commercial principles governing the relationships between the parties. This enables him to provide rigorous and commercially realistic advice. Jack’s particular experience includes:

  • Disputes in relation to financing agreements, for example a multi-million pound dispute over the provision of finance to enable the purchase of domestic solar panels (junior to Ben Quiney QC).
  • Disputes concerning the payment of commission to estate agents.
  • Individual and corporate insolvency cases for creditors and debtors.
  • Cases giving rise to private international law issues, including:
    • representing buyers of land situated in The Gambia in a dispute against the sellers; and,
    • advising a shipping company in a dispute arising out of the import of instant noodles into Scotland.
  • Successfully representing a claimant roofing company in a claim for unpaid fees that was defended on the basis that the debt had been settled by the provision of free curry.
