- Allergy Therapeutics (UK) Ltd v Inflamax Research Inc (London Commercial Court, 2017-18; led by Charles Samek KC). Acting for a Canadian medical trial services provider defending a US$10m damages claim for breach of contract and misrepresentation concerning its conduct of a trial of an new allergy treatment drug and counterclaiming for unpaid fees of over US$4m.

Represented the defendants in a dispute about a company’s entitlement to a bonus pursuant to an alleged oral agreement for work done on property development projects.

- Ritz Hotel Casino v Al Geabury  EWHC 2294 (QB) (Queen’s Bench Division, 2015; led by Clive Freedman KC). Successfully represented the casino at a six day High Court trial in a claim for unpaid gambling debts which raised detailed evidential issues about alleged gambling addiction and legal issues concerning the regulation of casinos and their obligations towards their patrons. In finding for the Ritz, Mrs Justice Simler relied upon documentary evidence which had been “painstakingly analysed by Mr Delehanty” (see judgment at para. 16). The defendant’s compliance with his disclosure obligations was scrutinised across a number of hotly contested pre-trial High Court hearings at which Marc appeared unled and secured orders for specific disclosure and inspection.
