Successful Injunction against legal proceedings brought by a Spanish group company - Turner v Grovit
01 August 2009
Our firm brought a successful injunction against legal proceedings brought by a Spanish group company of a business operating in the UK against an employee following his resignation claiming constructive dismissal. Although the company challenged the injunction in the Court of Appeal, we succeeded in having it upheld, on the basis that the Spanish proceedings were an abuse of process.
The outcome has substantial implications for individuals required to work abroad by their company, meaning that their contracts can be assigned to English legal jurisdiction and foreign proceedings can be prevented from taking place if they are considered an abuse of process.
