Canary Wharf (BP4) T1 Ltd v European Medicines Agency
Joanne Wicks QC and Jonathan Chew are acting for Canary Wharf Group in its dispute with the European Medicines Agency (Canary Wharf (BP4) T1 Ltd v European Medicines Agency). Lord Anderson of Ipswich KBE QC is dealing with European Law issues. Ben Hatton, Director of Property Litigation, and associate Adam Eagle are leading the team of instructing solicitors at Clifford Chance LLP. The Agency is arguing that its 25-year lease of premises at Canary Wharf will be frustrated (come to an end automatically) when the UK leaves the European Union. Canary Wharf Group is seeking a declaration so that the Agency is clear that its lease obligations will not be affected by Brexit.
