Jurisdictional matter

Jurisdictional matter

Postby ukcompanylaw » Sun May 21, 2017 1:28 pm

Can an overseas Court ,lawfully, pierce the veil of a UK Ltd Company to make a Judgement
against a director of said UK Ltd Company (civil not criminal ) ?. The director is NOT resident
in the Country (which is EU as is Court but different Countries) . It is made on the basis that
for a particular civil tort in the Courts Country the director (OF a Company incorporated
in that Country itself, but not a UK Ltd company ) can be held liable as well as Company,
whereas in the UK they cannot . I should add that the Company has a mailing address in the
overseas Country (like a mailbox address).

Well they can often be here.

If x operates in jurisdiction A, then x brings itself/himself under the laws of that jurisdiction. The circumstances would have to be checked but it looks likely.

Yes, I agree with dls.

And, for that matter, there are numerous laws of that nature in the UK, under which company directors and managers can face prosecution or civil liability.
