Court takes realist view of corporate personality

Beckett Investment Management Group Ltd v Hall

Court of Appeal

“In construing a covenant in restraint of trade between a holding company and its employees, who provided services through subsidiary companies within a corporate group, the Court of Appeal rejected a purist approach to corporate personality in favour of one which had regard to the realities of big business, taking the group as being one concern under one supreme control.”
