MCC Proceeds Inc v Lehman Brothers International (Europe); CA (Hobhouse, Pill, Mummery LJJ) 19 Dec 1997.
A person was only entitled to sue in conversion if he had actual possession or the immediate legal right to possession of the goods at the time of the conversion. Accordingly, where a nominee agreement had created a trust of shares for the benefit of the plaintiff company, and the defendant was a bona fide purchaser for value of the legal estate in the shares from the trustee, without notice of any breach of trust or of any claim by the plaintiff, the plaintiff could not maintain an action in conversion against the defendant.
Patrick Neill QC, Murray Rosen QC, Paul Smith (Herbert Smith) for the plaintiff; Charles Aldous QC, Robert Hildyard QC (Freshfields) for the defendant.
