Holgate v Addleshaw Goddard (Scotland) LLP

Conflict of laws – Jurisdiction. The claimant's application for a declaration that, among other things, the courts of England and Wales had no power under the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 to determine any of the causes in issue failed. Among other things, the court held that an anchor claim issued after the relevant claim was capable of conferring judgment, provided that the other requirements of the anchor provisions were satisfied.
