Ravin Ramkissoon v Estate Management & Business Development Co Ltd
David Phillips QC has successfully resisted a challenge to a Norwich Pharmacal Order that he obtained in Trinidad & Tobago earlier this year. On 29 October 2018 the Court of Appeal handed down a reserved judgment in an application for permission to appeal in Ravin Ramkissoon v Estate Management & Business Development Co Ltd. This was the first occasion on which the Court of Appeal had had occasion to consider the application of the Norwich Pharmacal jurisdiction in Trinidad. The decision endorsed David’s submissions, and adopted the Norwich Pharmacal practice that has developed in England and Wales. A copy of the full judgment may be viewed here.
