? Snoozebox Limited v The Health and Safety Executive Judgment

Raquel Agnello KC and Anna Scharnetzky acted for Snoozebox Limited (the Company).

Mr Richard Farnhill (sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge) handed down judgment on 17 April 2023 granting the Company’s claim for a declaration that any fine, which the Company might be ordered to pay in pending criminal proceedings, would not be recoverable

In summary, the Company sought declarations that the Health and Safety Executive (the HSE) and HM Treasury (HMT) were bound by a CVA approved by the Company’s creditors on 16 February 2018 and further that the Company’s liability to pay any fine or prosecution costs award, which might be imposed in pending criminal proceedings, had already been compromised and released under the CVA.
