Crispin Hayhoe represented Rygor Group Services Ltd in Axis Fleet Management Ltd v Rygor Group Services Ltd, a hearing before Martin Griffiths QC sitting as a Judge of the High Court. The central issue revolved around whether a contractual party could identify how its co-contractant had consented to that party transferring the burden of the contract to a third party. The contract itself imposed constrains, through a combination of an entire agreement clause and prescribed post contract formation formalities to any variation. Invoices sent to the third party could not constitute variation to the contract as, amongst other things, they failed to comply with the prescribed formalities. No superseding or circumventing of the contractual provisions was permissible.
