UK: England and Wales: just and equitable winding-up

Judgment was given yesterday by the Court of Appeal in Badyal v Badyal [2019] EWCA Civ 1644. At first instance the trial judge had rejected the argument that in order to secure the winding-up of a company under the just and equitable ground - section 122(1)(g) of the Insolvency Act 1986 - it was necessary only to show that mutual trust and confidence between the shareholders had broken down. The Court of Appeal agreed with the trial judge.
