The House of Lords in Attorney-General v Blake addressed the controversial issue of whether a plaintiff who has suffered no loss as a result of the defendant’s breach of contract can nevertheless recover the profits the defendant obtained from the breach. Although the courts have traditionally been hostile to such claims, the House of Lords has ruled that, in exceptional cases, the defendant can be required to account to the plaintiff for the profits acquired from the breach of contract.
