The Court of Appeal, granting an appeal from a decision Nicholas Strauss QC (sitting as a deputy judge), held that a break notice was invalid for failing to include some stipulated wording.  Lewison LJ’s judgment contains important guidance about the rule that option conditions must be complied with strictly.
