When does an agreed liquidated damages clause go too far and become a penalty?
** What scope do you have for arguing that the courts should intervene and the clause be ruled ineffective? (Talal El Makdessi [2013] EWCA, Unaoil v Leighton Offshore [2014] EWHC)

Answered by: the “charming, persuasive and able”, Joanna Smith QC, who is “marked out for her superb advocacy“. She “is a great person to have on side in court” and acting in the Makdessi litigation, appealing to the Supreme Court.
