In this case in the High Court (Chancery Division), the firm acted for the fifth respondent in successfully resisting a petition for relief under s.994 of the Companies Act 2006 (unfair prejudice). The dispute concerned an alleged agreement in 1992 to transfer to the petitioner 10% of a company owning a 4 star London hotel. After a trial lasting over a period of five weeks, the court found that our client was not subject to an obligation, as a matter of equity, to give effect to an entitlement of the petitioner to receive 10% of her shares in the company. The case also involved issues of trusts, undue influence, mistake and misrepresentation.
