Eason Rajah KC, Georgia Bedworth and James Kirby act for the successful claimant in Hinduja v Hinduja in the High Court on Tuesday.
“The billionaire Hinduja brothers are locked in a bitter High Court battle over the family’s vast assets. Srichand Hinduja, 84, is suing his brothers Gopichand, Prakash and Ashok over a July 2014 letter, signed by all four of them, which states that “assets held in any single brother’s name belong to all four”. He is seeking a declaration that the letter has no “legal effect, whether as a will, power of attorney, declaration of trust or other binding document”. A High Court judgment delivered on Tuesday disclosed that the family members are also embroiled in litigation in Switzerland over the control of Hinduja Bank, “an asset in Srichand’s sole name”… Mrs Justice Falk said Srichand Hinduja, who she described as “the current patriarch of the family”, has taken legal action against his three brothers to “determine the validity and effect” of the letter.” – Express & Star News, 23rd June 2020
