Ventures Food Limited v Little Dessert Shop Ltd [2022] EWHC


HHJ Richard Williams (sitting as a High Court Judge) held that significant litigation misconduct by third parties (who had been controlling the litigation conduct of a named party to proceedings) was sufficient to make an order for non-party costs against them. 

The availability of such a remedy may afford other litigants an opportunity to obtain an order for costs directly against third parties who have mis-controlled litigation in which a company is the named party to proceedings.

Nicholas Pilsbury and Justin Meiland, instructed by HMA Law, acted for the successful Defendant.
