Henry and another v Finch and another

Company – Shares. The Chancery Division considered an application by the joint liquidators of a company against its respondent directors, in which the liquidators sought, among other things, a declaration that the respondents were guilty of misfeasance and breach of trust in retaining properties that had belonged to the company. The application was dismissed, save in relation to the cancellation of a share redemption and the consequent effect upon properties which had remained in the commercial arrangement. However, in the light of the respondents' conduct, no relief would be granted to them under s 727 of the Companies Act 1985 or s 1157 of the Companies Act 2006 as applicable.
