Stuart acted for Coveris Flexibles UK Limited in a committal application against Mr Simon Brears, where the Defendant had frustrated the service of a search order, attempted to destroy or conceal evidence, breached the terms of two prohibitory injunctions and made a series of false statements including 24 false statements in his Defence.
On 21st June 2022, Mr Justice Henshaw sentenced Mr Brears to a total of 14 months immediate imprisonment, finding that Mr Brears committed a sustained and intentional series of contempts that made a sentence of immediate custody unavoidable.
Stuart was instructed by Neil Warner, Kate Canning and Sara Wright at Gateley Legal in Birmingham. The case is reported as Coveris Flexibles UK Limited v Simon Brears  EWHC 1594 (QB).
