NCA suffers Supreme Court defeat on assets recovery marshalling claim – 11 Stone Buildings

“On 23 October 2013, the Supreme Court gave judgment in Szepietowski v. the National Crime Agency (formerly the Serious Organised Crime Agency, ‘SOCA’). The case is now the leading authority on the marshalling of securities and will be of interest to those advising banks and other businesses involved in secured lending. The case, however, will also be of general interest in light of the Court’s consideration of the principles applicable to the construction of settlement agreements which involved the Court distinguishing the decision of the House of Lords in Bank of Credit and Commerce International v. Ali [2002] 1 AC 251.”
