Hughmans Court of Appeal Success

8th April 2016

Last week, the Court of Appeal delivered a favourable judgement on a point developed by Hughmans and Tim Owen QC. The case, in which Hughmans had acted for the Respondent prior to a change of representation, considered the issue of whether immunity attached to a Permanent Representative of the International Maritime Organisation for the purposes of seeking financial relief under the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984. The Court found in favour of the point developed by Hughmans and Tim Owen QC, namely that of residence, while rejecting the points developed by the new legal team. Hughmans lawyers pride themselves on working with the best counsel to develop strong legal arguments and this judgement is a welcome addition to our success stories in the Court of Appeal.

The case is discussed here.
