David has successfully defended a United Kingdom-registered Manufacturer in an action for, among others, an injunction brought against it by a Ghanaian-company distributor, in an attempt to freeze the UK Company's Ghana business. He has in addition won judgement and general damages for breach of contract when he represented an international commodities company in a multi-million dollar suit against a Ghana-Government-owned company in Ghana regarding a sale of goods contract.
