Hilton and others v D IV LLP and others

Disclosure and inspection of documents – Production of documents. The claimant investors issued proceedings, seeking a declaration that they were entitled to inspect and copy documents as of right on a true construction of the deeds governing the affairs of the defendant limited liability partnerships (LLP). The Chancery Division, in allowing the claim, held that, properly construed, a clause of the deeds created an express and unqualified right to inspect the books and records of the LLP concerned in favour of the members of the LLP concerned and their authorised representatives. There was no reason to exercise the discretion to refuse relief.
