The top 20 must-read financial remedy cases, as decided by the AAG Cloud editorial board

14th July 2021

The editorial board behind AAG Cloud: Mr Justice Mostyn, Lewis Marks QC, and Gavin Smith, have put together their all time top 20 leading finance cases, whereby if you were to read no other cases, these ones are essential.

Do you agree with them? Which cases do you consider essential that didn't make the list?

These top 20 cases are just a small handful from the database of over 1000 Leading Cases in the recently released AAG Cloud. The database is fully searchable by topic, or alphabetically.
