Shield v Shield & Anr [2014] EWCA Civ 1136 (3 July 2014)

Application for permission to appeal a conclusion that there was no express and binding agreement that the son of the divorced parties would receive the husband's shares on the husband's death. The shares belonged to the husband and they would form part of his estate after his death. This meant that these shares would be available to the court in respect of the wife's claim for financial provision. Application refused.
