The Case

Practice Service. Deutsche Bank applied without notice to add V as a party to the proceedings for the purpose of costs only. The Commercial Court, in proceedings concerning Deutsche Bank, held that a previous order granted in favour of the bank to serve V out of the jurisdiction could not stand where, on the facts, there were no grounds for justifying service by alternative means.
