Knowing Receipt Claims: Maryam Oghanna writes for Private Client Business Journal

Contentious Trusts and Estates Senior Associate, Maryam Oghanna, has written an article for Private Client Business Journal on knowing receipt claims.

In the article, entitled ‘Knowing Receipt after Byers v Saudi National Bank’, Maryam discusses the law on knowing receipt and the distinction between dishonest assistance and knowing receipt claims in light of the recent Supreme Court Decision in Byers v Saudi National Bank. The Supreme Court held that a knowing receipt claim cannot be made if the claimant’s equitable proprietary interest in the relevant asset has been extinguished at the time of the alleged knowing receipt.
