NML Capital Ltd v Chapman Freeborn Holdings Ltd and Others: CA 23 May 2013

This appeal examined the scope of the Norwich Pharmacal jurisdiction in the context of an attempt by a judgment creditor to enforce a judgment against a judgment debtor determined to resist enforcement. If successful, it would, in the words of Longmore LJ in granting permission to appeal: ‘be the first case in which a bona fide company doing business with a judgment debtor would find itself on the receiving end of a Norwich Pharmacal order merely to assist a judgment creditor in enforcing his or her judgment.’
