The High Court has given judgment in Kumar v Sharma  EWHC 612 (Ch), where Hossein Sharafi represented the successful applicant in an application to continue a freezing injunction in support of an unfair prejudice petition. The judgment confirms that the Court has jurisdiction to make a freezing order against an individual respondent to an unfair prejudice petition, departing from the previous decision of the High Court in Re Premier Electronics GB Ltd  BCC 911. The judgment also provides a useful legal guidance as regards:
- How standing to present an unfair prejudice petition is determined where a company has no register of members.
- The circumstances in which an event causing no financial loss will constitute unfair prejudice.
- The extent to which a freezing order should apply to jointly owned assets.
