  • Unsurprisingly, the Supreme Court repeated the Court of Appeal's serious criticisms of the way family lawyers and judges have applied s 24 of the Matrimonial Causes Act. Mrs Prest did not win on the basis that she could 'get at' the company's assets; she won on the basis that, on the facts, the company was not beneficially entitled to the assets at all.
