Breach of contract claim news - Martin Bain drops legal action

Former Rangers FC chief executive Martin Bain has announced that he has decided to drop his breach of contract claim against the club, a decision that has been welcomed by the football club's administrators.

As part of his claim, Bain's commercial litigation lawyers were pursuing around £900,000 in damages, alleging that the takeover of Craig Whyte in May 20111 gave rise to a breach of contract.

However, Bain has now said that he will discontinue his claim "in an effort to help the club".

The news has been welcomed by fans and administrators alike.

"We are pleased Martin Bain has, in light of the present situation at Rangers, offered to drop his action for damages following his dismissal by Craig Whyte whilst chairman. Mr Bain has also agreed to release to the club a significant proportion of the sum that was arrested as part of this action," commented an administrator spokesperson.

The administrator added, "He has made plain the litigation was a response to the actions of Craig Whyte and not Rangers FC and given developments he now wishes to end the litigation action and do what he can to support the club in these difficult times."

The breach of contract claim was just one of many commercial law disputes related to Rangers FC and the Whyte takeover, with many multi-million pound claims still remaining.

Negotiating an Agreement – Pitfalls to avoid

We all form contracts every day. Not all contracts need to be in writing (though some, such as some land contracts, do). When you buy a loaf of bread from your local shop, you offer to purchase it, the offer is accepted by the baker, you pay them your money and acquire your loaf. Congratulations, you have successfully entered into and performed a contract.


Optimism over Chichester weather response

It's a fine balance for councils and businesses: when extreme weather strikes it is important that things carry on as normally as possible and that the typical routines and rhythms of life do not give way unnecessarily to hysteria and disruption.
