The PCA recently published an MRO arbitration case in which the PubCompany Star Pubs and Bars (Heineken) were represented by DLA Piper.
The tenant was being represented by Pubs Advisory Service.
The tenant had sadly passed away sometime earlier and this event was now being gamed by the pub company to try and overturn the previous MRO award (which had gone in favour of the tenant).
In an unprecedented dressing down the arbitrator said, in its award to the parties, that the argument put forward (from Star Pubs / DLA Piper) was distasteful – see point 45.
