Victorious in the High Court

Victorious in the High Court

Published: 27 February 2016

On Friday 19 February Fletcher Day secured a £1.4 million ‘win’ for our clients. We acted for a group of investors in a claim arising out of a £405 million investment in a hotel development in the Caribbean (Buccament Bay) through the Harlequin group of companies. We successfully obtained summary judgment in a claim brought by directors, Mr and Mrs Ames. 

The history of this case is complex and our clients had issued a claim against the Ames’ which was settled for £1.3 million. However, when the Ames failed to honour their obligations and our clients went to enforce, the Ames attempted to use the court system to avoid payment. They alleged misrepresentations by our clients’ former solicitor, amongst other things, to drag our clients through the courts to trial. 

Just in Case: The Rise of Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements

Just in Case: The Rise of Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements

Published: 27 February 2016

It may not come as a surprise to hear that pre-nuptial agreements are becoming more commonplace. Courts have typically supported the right of couples to enter into a contract to agree how assets and income should be divided in the event of divorce.

However what may come as more of a surprise is the volume of new enquiries to discuss the possibility of negotiating and signing a post-nuptial agreement, where there is no pre-nuptial agreement already in place.  Generally speaking, post-nuptial agreements had previously been used to ‘affirm’ the terms of the original pre-nuptial agreement – in the hope the Court would give the agreement more weight.
