Consider a fictitious case involving Leo Pedersen and Calvin Pedersen. Beyond the facts of this case, there are two additional documents that you will need to consider. Firstly, an email conversation between Leo Pedersen and Amran Khatun. Secondly, Leo’s validly executed will. All documents are available below. Leo Pedersen and Calvin Pedersen are brothers. In 2010, Leo left his job to set up Viking Oak Software Ltd. His company has grown into one of the top providers of cybersecurity solutions in England. Leo is the director and the majority shareholder, owning 100,000 shares. In 2012, his brother Calvin joined the company and became the owner of 50,000 shares. In 2020, Leo was diagnosed with a medical condition expected to shorten his life expectancy dramatically.
Having received the news, he decided to draft a will. He began thinking about who he wanted to benefit from his will. Beyond his close family members, Leo decided to benefit a few other people. In particular, Leo thought back to the early days of Viking Oak Software Ltd. During its inception, his first employee, Lucy Wilson, had been instrumental in bringing in new clients helping the company to stay financially viable. In 2016, Lucy and Calvin started a relationship that ended in 2019 when Calvin discovered that Lucy had been having an affair with another man. Despite this, Lucy had always been good to Leo, and so he wanted her to benefit from his will regardless of what had happened between Lucy and his brother.
Nevertheless, Leo was adamant that Calvin was never to find out about Lucy benefitting from his will. On 7th July 2020, Leo emailed his solicitor, Amran Khatun, suggesting a secret scheme that would allow Lucy to benefit without Calvin finding out. That Jimmy held with Bronze Bank Plc. When Jimmy contacted Relck Tech the following day, he was informed that the company had discontinued the production of their 3D printers. On the 1st of March 2023, Jimmy decided not to proceed with his printing business. He mentioned this to his solicitor, Marvin Singh.
