This study aims to report and comment on the High Court judgment regarding The Inertia Partnership (TIP).
The paper outlines the facts surrounding this decision and comments on the ruling.
The court took a strong line on the link between the activities of TIP and offshore boiler rooms and the value to the achievement of FSA's statutory objectives that the firm message a compulsory winding‐up order on public interest grounds would send to other firms and individuals who may become involved directly or indirectly with such potentially abusive sales techniques.
The paper provides useful information for all those involved in management consultancy businesses.
