OBG v Allan (Mainstream Properties v Young)

Citation[2007] UKHL 21; [2008] 1 AC 1

A third party who funded directors of a development company who, in breach of fiduciary duty, appropriated a development opportunity for themselves, was not guilty of the tort of inducing a breach of contract because his, subjective, intention was not to bring about that end.

John de Waal acted for the appellant (Respondent in the House of Lords).
