Hughmans win multi million pound breach of contract claim

5th November 2015

Harb v HRH Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz [2015] EWHC 3155 (Ch)

Hughmans have won a substantial claim against a senior member of the Saudi Royal Family on behalf of their client Janan Harb, widow of the late King Fahd. The litigation focused on an oral agreement between Mrs Harb and the late King’s son, the Defendant, who had agreed to pay her £12m and procure the transfer of two flats in Chelsea in order to honour his father’s promise to keep her financially for the rest of her life. The Defendant denied any agreement had been made but failed to attend Court to be cross examined. The High Court found in favour of Mrs Harb. Matthew Jenkins acted for Mrs Harb.
