ENFORCEMENT: Into thin air

18 April 2017  

Laura Guillon analyses a Court of Appeal decision where international assets and a reluctant party prevented the implementation of a financial consent order

In Bezeliansky v Bezelianskaya [2016] the Court of Appeal was concerned with a big-money case, with a convoluted history and a multitude of issues to consider including non-disclosure, the setting aside and variation of consent orders, enforcement, and committal for non-compliance with an order. The decision highlights that even the most carefully crafted financial consent order may be frustrated when parties and properties are located in different jurisdictions.
