3VB’s Fraud Breakfast Forum: Byers v Samba Financial Group

Members of 3VB’s Civil Fraud Team are proud to present a series of morning talks in a digestible form.

In the fourth of this series, Andrew Onslow QC and Sarah Tulip will discuss the recent decision in Byers & Ors v Samba Financial Group [2021] EWHC 60 (Ch), and what it has to say about cross-border claims in “knowing receipt”.

Among the topics to be discussed will be:

  • What if the law of the country where the receipt occurs does not recognise the claimant’s beneficial interest in the assets?
  • What if the beneficial interest is extinguished on receipt by the defendant?
  • How are the assets to be valued and compensation assessed?
