In 2017 we reported on the Court of Appeal decision in Cameron v Hussain. Today the Supreme Court handed down the hotly anticipated judgment in the appeal of that decision. The Supreme Court upheld the insurer's appeal, reversing the Court of Appeal decision.
Following the important decision of Coulson J at first instance in Grove Developments Ltd v S&T (UK) Ltd in February of this year (which we considered in an earlier article), the eagerly awaited Court of Appeal decision following S&T (UK) Ltd's appeal has now been handed down.
We understand that measurable results are important. Over the last 12 months, we have saved £2.8 million for our clients at a return on investment of £6.29 for every £1, and enhancing our clients' reputation for fighting fraud.
