Permission to serve out of the jurisdiction refused

July 30, 2021

The High Court has handed down an important judgment in Koza Ltd v. Koza Altin refusing permission to serve proceedings out of the jurisdiction.  The issue arose in the course of a long-running dispute involving a Turkish parent company and an English subsidiary.  The judgment explores the extent to which the English court is willing to consider the validity under foreign law of the appointment of directors of a foreign company.   Jonathan Crow QC represented the Defendants who argued successfully that there was no serious issue to be tried.  Click here for a copy of the judgment.
