Article summary

Dispute Resolution analysis: Mr Justice Freedman, in the High Court, having considered an application by Les Ambassadeurs Club Limited (the claimant) for the continuation of a worldwide freezing order (WFO) against Sheikh Salah Hamdan Albluewi, decided that it should be discharged because the claimant had failed to establish a real risk of dissipation of assets and had neglected to make full and frank disclosure of material facts on the without notice application. The case provides a useful reminder to practitioners of how to approach applications for WFOs and provides particular guidance on the utility of obtaining transcripts in respect of without notice hearings.
