Clarissa Jones successfully acts for the Ministry of National Defence of Taiwan in two post-judgment applications

Clarissa Jones has acted successfully for the Ministry of National Defence of Taiwan in two recent applications following on from the Court of Appeal’s decision to set aside the claimant’s registration of a foreign “judgment on a judgment” ([2020] EWCA Civ 1604). Those applications were (1) an application to debar the claimant, Strategic Technologies, from participating in the costs assessment proceedings due to its deliberate failure to make a £300,000 interim payment on account of costs, and (2) an application by Strategic Technologies for an order setting off its total costs liability against a different, very old registration order, which was dismissed on the grounds that a set-off would not be just and equitable in the circumstances.

Clarissa was instructed by Andrew Hearn and Suzi Cocksedge of Dechert LLP.
