Among the all-too-numerous public law cases slated for hearing in the Supreme Court this coming term, three solid commercial appeals beckon. IPCO (Nigeria) Ltd v Nigeria National Petroleum Corp  EWCA Civ 1144 is about arbitration and security for costs (hearing 2 Feb). Wood v Capita Insurance  EWCA Civ 839 (7 Feb) is yet another case on interpretation of contracts to add to the burgeoning jurisprudence which almost every judge faced with an interpretation issue now feels constrained to mention in his judgment. And, for financial law buffs, there is Taurus Petroleum Ltd v SOMO  EWCA Civ 835 (21/22 March) on the situs of a L/C debt (and an incidental question of who the creditor is). Happy days.
