JSC BTA Bank v Khrapunov – Supreme Court grants permission to appeal

The Supreme Court (Lord Clarke, Lord Mance and Lord Sumption) has granted Mr Khrapunov permission to appeal on all grounds against the order of the Court of Appeal (see judgment reported at [2017] 2 WLR 1563). It is expected that the hearing will take place towards the end of January 2018. The Supreme Court will rule on whether breaches of court orders can constitute unlawful means for the purpose of the tort of conspiracy by unlawful means and it will also consider the tort jurisdiction gateway in Art 5.3 of the Lugano Convention. Charles Samek QC and Marc Delehanty act for Mr Khrapunov.
