Lydia Seymour, who was instructed by Hugh James, acted for the successful Claimant in CRAFT (Ceredigion Recycling and Furniture Team), an important Chancery Division decision on remedies in cases involving misappropriation of company assets by Directors.  This is a useful decision on how remedies should be determined in a situation in which company directors have wrongfully converted company property to themselves—should the property simply be returned in full, or is it open to the directors to argue that they should have credit for sums that they would have received had they acted in accordance with their duties? In this…

Tom Gibson acts for successful claimant in ‘freak accident’ brain injury case

Tom Gibson acted recently for a claimant, a young high-flying teacher, who suffered a fractured skull and brain injury in a ‘freak’ road traffic accident.  While driving on the A1, a sheet of metal flew through her windscreen and sliced her skull open.
