Saeed & Saeed v Ibrahim & ors: High Court rules to "restore the status quo" in 'warehousing' fraud case

8th August 2018

The High Court has handed down judgement on Saeed & Saeed v Ibrahim & Ors [2018] EWHC 1804 (Ch), in which the claimants sought to recover matrimonial assets involved in a 'warehousing' fraud. Aidan Briggs appeared for the successful claimants.


"Legally, the case is a rare example of the principles from Patel v Mirza [2016] UKSC 42 being applied at trial, rather than on a strike-out application, and placing some emphasis on the minority view of Lord Neuberger that in circumstances where both sides are equally culpable, the best course is to restore the status quo." - Aidan Briggs
