PCB Byrne defeats £6m bribery case

In Solland and another v Watkins and another [2021] EWHC 3447 (Ch), PCB Byrne represented the successful second defendant in challenging the jurisdiction of the English court in respect of a £6m claim based on alleged bribery of the agent of property developers. The court was persuaded that there was no serious issue to be tried based on the width of an earlier contractual release of claims, and that the claimants had misled the court when obtaining permission to serve the proceedings out of the jurisdiction by failing to refer to the release and its effect.
