Dion Friedland v Charles Hickox

On 1 February 2021 the Privy Council delivered judgment in the appeal Dion Friedland v Charles Hickox in which David Phillips QC represented Mr Friedland.  A copy of the judgment can be found here.  Described by Lady Arden as being “the latest round in long-running litigation between Mr Dion Friedland and Mr Charles Hickox” the appeal involved the construction of a New York mediator’s Award arising out of New York commercial proceedings generated by a series of Anguillan contracts.  The subject matter of the dispute was the Cap Juluca resort in Anguilla, one of the Caribbean’s premier resorts.  The parties and their associated companies have now been in dispute for almost 35 years, generating litigation and hearings in Anguilla, Antigua, St Lucia, London and New York.
