Singularis Holdings Ltd v Daiwa Capital Markets Europe Ltd: ChD 16 Feb 2017

Claim for return of money said to be held for the claimant’s benefit by a stockbroker.
Held: Rose J dismissed the dishonest assistance claim because Daiwa’s employees had acted honestly. However, she upheld the negligence claim, while making a deduction of 25% under the Law Reform (Contributory Negligence) Act 1945 to reflect the contributory fault of Mr Al Sanea and the company’s inactive directors, for which the company was responsible
