Jong v HSBC Private Bank (Monaco) SA and others

Conflict of laws – Jurisdiction. The claimant sought to bring proceedings against the first defendant, which was based in Monaco, and the second and third defendants, which were based in England. The Chancery Division, in setting aside permission to serve proceedings out of the jurisdiction, held that the claimant had failed to show that the English jurisdiction was clearly the more appropriate forum for the claim.
