Practice and Procedure

MOORE STEPHENS (A Firm) v STONE & ROLLS LTD (In Liquidation) (2008)

PUBLISHED June 18, 2008

[2008] EWCA Civ 644

The principle that a company would not have attributed to it knowledge of a fraud when that fraud was being practised on the company itself only applied where the company was the intended victim or target of the fraud and not where harm to the company merely resulted from the discovery of the fraud.
