Appeal against the making of an enforcement receivership order over assets


Re: Boyle Transport (Northern Ireland) Ltd v R [2016] EWCA Crim 19

The Court of Appeal quashed substantial confiscation and enforcement receivership orders against the appellant. The case is an important one in relation to piercing the corporate veil in confiscation cases, and is the first detailed consideration by the CofA in this context of the general principles set out by the Supreme Court in Prest v Petrodel Resources Ltd [2013] UKSC 34.

Julian Knowles QC and Andrew Bodnar were involved in this case.
