M v W
1 September 2016
In September 2016 Adam was instructed at less than 24 hours’ notice in relation to an urgent Search Order application in the case of M v W. The purpose of the search was to look for information and accounts relating to the Estate of a Deceased testator, which the onetime Executor (who had been removed by the courts because of his grievous failures in respect of the role) simply would not deliver up. Despite a number of issues arising which needed to be dealt with before the judge, HHJ McCahill QC, the Search Order was granted. The search which followed the application was extremely fruitful. Adam was instructed again for the return date and at that hearing the Applicant was granted the entirety of its costs.
