Practice Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The Chancery Division ruled: (i) on the defendants' application for a fortification of the cross-undertaking in damages in respect of a freezing order obtained against them in proceedings for conspiracy to defraud the claimant companies; and (ii) on the application by the first and second defendants for appointment of additional administrators on the basis that the firm in which the claimants' administrators were partners (and its predecessor entities) had acted as personal tax advisors to the first defendant and were therefore in a position of conflict in respect of the fraud proceedings.
