Marex Financial Limited v Carlos Sevilleja Garcia [2017] EWHC 918 (Comm)

Mr Justice Knowles CBE handed down a judgment on 25 April 2017 dismissing Mr Sevilleja’s jurisdiction challenge.

This case raises a number of important issues on the proper construction of the tort jurisdictional gateway; the scope of the tort of procuring a breach of contract (in particular whether the cause of action extends to procuring a breach of rights under a judgment); and the rule against reflective loss.

The case will be of particular interest to those considering what remedies there might be in a situation where there has been a dissipation of assets prior to the granting of a freezing injunction.

The full judgment is attached below.
