Dinglis Properties Limited - EWHC 1664 [2019]

Andreas Dinglis came to the UK from Cyprus; he was clearly someone with a strong entrepreneurial drive from his earliest years. In the UK he initially ran a clothing manufacturing business, but later moved into the development of bed and breakfast hotels.

From these early footings he developed a substantial property business. Andreas was always the moving force in the business; he was however from a traditional background and had a strong sense of his obligation to make sure that he provided for his family. As part of this sense of obligation he gifted 12% of his shares to each of his wife, and his two children.

There were two children, Paul and Cheryl, both of whom became involved in the operation of Dinglis Properties Limited (DPL), but with the omnipresent influence of Andreas always looming above them.
