Akhmedova v Akhmedov & Ors [2021] EWHC 545 (Fam)

Robert Levy QC and Oliver Assersohn acted on behalf of Temur Akhmedov and Erin Hitchens appeared for Borderedge Ltd in the UK’s largest divorce case, which is featured in The Lawyer’s Judgments of Note. The case involved a number of important legal issues likely to be of relevance to commercial and chancery practitioners and in particular the circumstances in which s. 423 Insolvency Act can be invoked.

In her judgment, Mrs Justice Knowles stated: “At the outset, I wish to record my thanks to the advocates who appeared before me. Their written and oral submissions were excellent, and each said all that could have been said on behalf of their respective clients.”

The case attracted widespread media coverage, including the BBCThe Guardian and Financial Times.
