UK: Supreme Court to give judgment next week in quantum meruit case

The Supreme Court has announced that it will give judgment next Wednesday in Benedetti v Sawiris. The issues before the court, to quote directly from the case summary, were these: [1] To what extent the parties’ subjective valuation of services (both before and after the provision of those services) can be taken into account by the court when assessing the valuation of those services on the quantum meruit basis? [2] In which circumstances does free acceptance of services amount to enrichment for the purpose of a restitutionary claim?
