Description

A primary reference tool on the general principles and the particular aspects of common law damages, McGregor on Damages is still the leading authority on damages and has been for over 50 years.
Part of the Common Law Library McGregor on Damages provides in-depth and comprehensive coverage of the law, from detailed consideration of the general principles to a full analysis of specific areas of damages.
The 21st edition contains a number of significant new features:
  • Each and every chapter of the book's fifty chapters has been updated and many have been very substantially revised.
  • An entirely rewritten chapter on licence fee damages following the groundbreaking decision of the Supreme Court in Morris-Garner v One Step (Support) Ltd [2018] UKSC 20, [2019] AC 649. This detailed new chapter explains the circumstances in which this very important category of damages will be available after that decision.
  • Many revisions and updated chapters have been prompted by important new decisions. The rewritten chapter on causation, scope of duty and remoteness of damages, by itself, reflects new and important decisions of the Supreme Court and Privy Council such as Tiuta International Ltd v De Villiers Surveyors Ltd [2017] UKSC 77, [2017] 1 WLR 4627; Darnley v Croydon Health Services NHS Trust [2018] UKSC 50, [2019] AC 831; Perry v Raleys Solicitors [2019] 2 WLR 636; R (Hemmati) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019] UKSC 56, [2019] 3 W.L.R. 1156; and Attorney General of the Virgin Islands v Global Water Associates Ltd [2020] UKPC 18 as well as decisions of the Court of Appeal and High Court in MNX v Khan [2018] EWCA Civ 2609, [2019] EWCA Civ 152; Clay v TUI UK Ltd [2018] EWCA Civ 1177, [2018] 4 All ER 672; Duce v Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust [2018] EWCA Civ 1307; Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton UK LLP [2019] EWCA Civ 40, [2019] 1 W.L.R. 4610; ARB v IVF Hammersmith Ltd [2018] EWCA Civ 2803, [2020] QB 93; Phones4u Ltd (In admin) v EE Ltd [2018] EWHC 49 (Comm); Nautical Challenge Ltd v Evergreen Marine (UK) Ltd [2019] EWHC 163 (Admrlty), [2019] 1 Lloyd's Rep 543; Rihan v Ernst and Young Global [2020] EWHC 901 (QB); Leggett v Giambrone Law LLP (in liq) [2020] EWHC 724 (QB) and McAlpine Grant Ilco Ltd v AFR Refrigeration Ltd [2020] EWHC 106 (QB).
