Judgment has recently been given in a dispute over the correct interpretation of standard form contractual wording on which a debtor sought to rely in order to avoid his payment obligations by reference to the risk of incurring secondary US sanctions.  The judgment in Lamesa Investment Ltd v. Cynergy Bank Ltd [2020] EWCA Civ 821 can be found here.  Jonathan Crow QC represented the creditor.
