UK: Supreme Court judgment in FHR due next week

The Supreme Court will give judgment next week in FHR European Ventures LLP v Cedar Capital Partners LLC: see here. The principal issue before the court, to quote from its case summary, was this: does an agent who receives a secret commission hold the sum paid on constructive trust for his principal(s) giving rise to proprietary rights?

The appeal hearing took place last month before a panel of seven justices: Lord Neuberger, Lord Mance, Lord Sumption, Lord Carnwath, Lord Toulson, Lord Hodge and Lord Collins.
