UK: England and Wales: service of claim form on director of foreign company

The Court of Appeal gave judgment in SSL International Plc v TTK LIG Ltd [2011] EWCA Civ 1170 earlier this week. The opening paragraph of the summary of the case provided by the ICLR - available here - reads:

Service of a claim form on the director of a foreign company during his temporary visit to England did not constitute personal service of the claim form on the company, within CPR r 6.5(3)(b), where the company was neither resident nor carried on business in England and all its directors were resident overseas when the proceedings were purportedly served."
