Four Seasons Holdings Incorporated –v- Lady Brownlie




John Ross QC and Matthew Chapman QC have recently appeared in the case of Four Seasons Holdings Incorporated –v- Lady Brownlie in the Supreme Court.

One of the issues relates to ‘whether the Court of Appeal erred in holding that the tort jurisdictional gateway test under paragraph 3.1(9)(a) Practice Direction 6B of the CPR, which requires that "damage" be sustained within the jurisdiction, is not satisfied by indirect or consequential damage’.

After a day and a half of hearing submissions from both parties, the Court has adjourned the matter for further argument.”
