UK: England and Wales: prejudicial, but not unfair

A good illustration that, in order to succeed in bringing a claim for unfair prejudice, the claimant must establish both unfairness and prejudice, is provided by the recent High Court judgment Hussain v Hussain [2022] EWHC 1880 (Ch). Chief ICC Judge Briggs found that conduct agreed to be prejudicial (withdrawals in excess of declared salaries) was nevertheless not unfair because of, amongst other things, an understanding regarding the rights of the family members to draw on the profits generated by the businesses.
