Campbell v Campbell

Injunction – Dissolution of partnership. In the context of wider proceedings concerning the dissolution of a partnership between two brothers (the claimant and the defendant), the Chancery Division granted the claimant's application for a freezing injunction, restraining the defendant from dealing with his principal asset, namely his beneficial interest in shares in a Jersey company, in which the claimant also beneficially owned shares. The court held that there was a real risk that the defendant would dissipate that asset, such that there was a real risk of a judgment in the claimant's favour in the Jersey proceedings going unsatisfied if the injunction was not granted. Further, the court held that the injunction would also protect the claimant's anticipated costs order in the proceedings in Jersey.
