Landmark Success in the Supreme Court for Sally Harrison QC and Samantha Hillas

October 14, 2015

After four months of deliberation, the Supreme Court today handed down the much awaited judgments in the high profile cases of Gohil and Sharland.

The Supreme Court decided in favour of Mrs Gohil and Mrs Sharland – which will open up a radical change in the way courts handle divorce payouts in cases based on false or incomplete financial information.

Head of Chambers at St John’s Buildings, Sally Harrison QC, was leading counsel for Mrs Gohil. Samantha Hillas of SJB was junior counsel, both instructed by Ros Bever of Irwin Mitchell solicitors.

Miss Harrison commented: “The ruling today in the Supreme Court ends an 11 year battle for Mrs Gohil to achieve the right to a fair hearing of her financial claims. We are delighted to have been able to fight on her behalf to achieve a successful outcome for her in the Supreme Court.”
