The Equitable Life Assurance Society v Roger Bowley & Others

Widely reported in the national and international press 2002-2006

2nd January 2005

High Court


Instructed on behalf of one or more of the former Directors of The Equitable Life Assurance Society in the multi-billion pound claim brought by the Society against its former Directors for alleged negligence and breach of fiduciary duty. The case attracted huge media interest from 2001 to 2006, and during the course of the six month trial in 2005 received even more intense media coverage. The case settled shortly before judgment was due to be given. This was one of the most contentious and highly-reported cases of the decade, and it has left a lasting legacy in terms of extremely large and complex commercial litigation.
