HALLIWELLS LLP (In Administration) v IAN DAFYDD AUSTIN & ORS (2012)

PUBLISHED April 24, 2012

[2012] EWHC 1194 (Ch)

Where a partner in a law firm had retired from the partnership and the retirement deed had provided for cross-releases of claims excluding "any claim for fraud", the word fraud was to be construed in a sense which required dishonesty to be present so that it could apply to a dishonest abuse of fiduciary position.
