Coram is Successful at Supreme Court in Re: NY

Home » International Family » Coram is Successful at Supreme Court in Re: NY

Coram was successful in acting for the appellant in Re NY (A Child) before the UK Supreme Court.

The matter considered the use of inherent jurisdiction to order summary re-location. The Court answered “yes” to the following questions:

  • Was the inherent jurisdiction in principle available to be exercised in the making of a summary order for the child’s return?
  • If so, was the Court of Appeal’s approach to the exercise of the jurisdiction flawed?

Mark Twomey (QC) and Alex Laing were instructed by Dawson Cornwell on this matter.

We will be discussing this matter in detail with a panel joined by instructing solicitors, Anne-Marie Hutchinson OBE QC (Hon) and James Netto, at our International Children Law Conference on 6 November. Tickets are almost sold out.
