Judgement for the case Les Affreteurs Societe Anonyme v Leopold Walford (London) Ltd

 R brokered a deal whereby A chartered a ship from C and R was to receive 3 per cent of the amount paid. R was trying to claim from the C (owners of the boat) their commission and the A joined R as plaintiffs. It was held by HL that a charterer can contract on behalf of the brokerer. Hence the charterer can sue as the trustee of the brokerer. This is for commercial convenience.
