QC Corner: Nigel Cooper QC

The decision of the Court of Apeal in Kaefer Aislamientos SA v. AMS Drilling Mexico SA & Ors is essential reading for anyone seeking to establish or challenge jurisdiction in the High Court of England & Wales or in a court which will be guided by English law principles.

QC Corner: John Machell QC

It is nothing new for common law judges to have to grapple with the tension between the law’s default desire for open justice and the desire of beneficiaries of trusts for privacy. In cases where the court is exercising its supervisory jurisdiction and is not adjudicating upon the parties’ legal rights, the courts have often come down in favour of privacy.
