United Kingdom: COVID-19 – Dishonest assistance and fraudulent trading: Bilta (UK) Limited (in liquidation)...

0
This article relates to a recent High Court decision regarding dishonest assistance, fraudulent trading (pursuant to s.213 of the Insolvency Act) and vicarious liability and will be particularly relevant to brokers, banks, traders and other intermediaries which process payments and other transactions.  The Disputes Resolution team shed light on the circumstances in which those entities and individuals may be found by the Courts to have acted dishonestly by failing to seek further information where they have suspicions of potential wrongdoing. This will also be useful reading in preparation for a post-Covid-19 world, when the repercussions of actions that took place before and during the pandemic will be better understood and will no doubt be thrust under a spotlight.
