Clients praise Enterprise Chambers for its ‘strength in depth, flexibility, and good clerking‘ in relation to a variety of litigation and advisory work involving companies, directors, and shareholders. Linden Ife, who has substantial experience acting in shareholder disputes – often for major institutional investors and banks – was instructed in Penfold v Penfold, which raised issues about the breadth of remedies available under section 994 of the Companies Act 2006 and the interaction between unfair prejudice and a just and equitable winding-up; the case settled shortly into the trial. In another highlight, Niall McCulloch represents the BVI-incorporated claimants in Monredon Limited and Futura Partners Limited v AIA Group LLC and ROK STARS plc, an English action over the ownership of shares in ROK Stars plc.
