Al-Dowaisan and another v Al-Salam and others

Equity – Fiduciary duty. The first and second defendants did not owe any personal duty to account to the claimants, although a company had owed a limited duty to account in respect of particular projects. The Chancery Division further held that it was a proportionate response to the first defendant's conduct in opening and using an account for the purposes of tax evasion to refuse the relief to which he would otherwise have been entitled on his counterclaim.
