We are greatly appreciative of the note from Richard Todd QC, who kindly acknowledged our hard work and expertise in the recent Supreme Court case of Petrodel v Prest. This landmark victory was a triumph for all involved and we return the sense of privilege that we are so often able to work with outstanding barristers such as Richard, to achieve the best results for our clients. Petrodel v Prest has sparked debate in the worlds of both corporate and family law; Vardags is delighted to have played its part in such an important legal judgment.
Note from Richard Todd, QC.
“Dear Ayesha, Just a quick note to acknowledge yours and your firm’s pivotal role in achieving such an outstanding success in the recent Supreme Court case of Petrodel v Prest. As you are aware the seeds of our success were sown during your stewardship of the case; both the factual matrix and the critical beneficial interests argument. Counsel (myself and Stephen Trowell in the Court of Appeal, then the two of us and Daniel Lightman in the Supreme Court) were able to build on our early work together and thus achieve this great triumph for Yasmin Prest. Credit where credit is due; well done you!
Very best wishes,
Richard Todd QC, 1 Hare Court, Temple”
