Prest v Petrodel Resources Limited

Author: Chris Millar

The Supreme Court decided that assets were held by a company as bare trustee for the husband, and therefore could be brought into account, but also held that if a Court can find no other way to get at the assets in question where an individual seeks to evade a legal obligation by interposing a company, then the Court may be prepared to pierce the corporate veil.
