Mohammed v Daji [2023] EWHC 2761 (Ch)

Jonathan Fowles, led by Mark Sefton KC of Falcon Chambers and instructed by Mishcon de Reya LLP, acted for the successful claimants in Mohammed v Daji [2023] EWHC 2761 (Ch). The successful claim was to establish that a very substantial site at Abbey Mills in East London is held by the claimants on a charitable trust associated with a particular Sunni Muslim community in the London region. The judgment of HHJ Cadwallader, sitting as a Chancery Judge, is of significance for trusts and charities lawyers. In particular, the judgment sets out and applies the law relating to trusts established by charity appeals to a complicated factual history, and further develops the principle of delegated authority to declare charitable trusts in Attorney-General v Mathieson  [1907] 2 Ch 383.
