3VB wins Georgian Billionaire Dispute

Ewan McQuater QC led the successful counsel team instructed by Brown Rudnick in a comprehensive win on issues of liability in this hotly contested dispute over the proceeds earned in recovering the assets forming the estate of deceased Georgian billionaire Arkady (Badri) Patarkatsishvili after his unexpected death. In her judgment handed down on 1/11/18, following a 4 week trial in June and July 2018, Mrs Justice Cockerill found the defendants had resigned in bad faith in order unlawfully to divert this lucrative business opportunity to themselves and had subsequently given dishonest evidence to the court about it: [2018] EWHC 2918 (Comm). The case now proceeds to the quantum phase with suggestions that hundreds of millions of dollars were unlawfully earned.
