Bank Mellat v EU Council

Following the landmark decision in its favour from the UK Supreme Court, our client Bank Mellat, Iran’s largest private bank, has recently achieved a second stunning victory in the European Court of Justice, upholding the judgment of the General Court of the European Union that sanctions had been unlawfully imposed on it by the EU in 2010. Bank Mellat has been fighting a legal battle for several years against its inclusion on the EU and UK sanctions lists over alleged links to Tehran’s nuclear missile programme. Zaiwalla & Co continue to act for the bank in a US $ 4 billion damages claim against the UK government in a trial listed in October 2016.
