Judgment was handed down on Monday in Gill v Thind [2022] EWHC 2872 (Ch), a dispute over the ownership of three companies. After a three-week trial, Mr David Halpern KC, sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge, dismissed claims for declarations that the claimant beneficially owned shares in three companies. He accepted the defendants’ case that the claimant had agreed to hold the shares on trust. Having dismissed the claim, the judge dismissed an unfair prejudice petition brought by the same claimant.

John Randall KC and Rob Mundy, instructed by Morgan Rees and George Gwynn of George Green LLP, represented the successful defendants.

The trial was the culmination of litigation that began in early 2019. John and Rob had previously represented the same defendants in successfully resisting an application for a freezing order and in successfully resisting an application for permission to continue derivative claims: [2020] EWHC 2973 (Ch).
