Labrouche v Frey
18th Feb 2016
Before: The Hon Mrs Justice Asplin Dbe
Citation:  EWHC 268
The claims in this matter, brought by Forester Maurice Labrouche (“Forester”) all relate to alleged breaches of the trusts of the will of his grandmother, Olga Martin Montis (“Olga”). Having inherited a considerable fortune from her first husband, Olga died on 8 February 1980 aged 90, domiciled in Switzerland, leaving a last will dated 9 May 1974 which is in English and is governed by English Law (“Olga’s Will”). The relevant background to this matter is extremely complex. In order to understand the nature of the claims being made and the defences to them, it is necessary to set it out in some detail.
Simon Taube QC, Marcus Staff & Adam Cloherty (instructed by Charles Russell Speechlys LLP) for the Claimant.
