Appointing Administrators

Pitfalls and recent developments

Webinar recording streamed live - 1st May 10am start



Topics covered

The coming into force of the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016 has continued to cause difficulties in a number of areas, particularly in relation to appointments of administrators.  Some of these difficulties and ambiguities have been compounded by the interaction with the Electronic Working Pilot Scheme under the CPR, and established practices relating to out-of-hours appointments are now being called into question.

This seminar examines legislative changes and recent case law, providing strategic advice as to how to avoid potential pitfalls and validity challenges.

He also accepts instructions in insolvency related commercial and property disputes.

Jonathan is known as a tenacious advocate and skilled strategist and tactician. He is popular and well respected by both his lay and professional clients for whom he is often seen as “go to” counsel.

Jonathan has an established practise dealing with the negligence of professionals involved in his core areas such as insolvency practitioners, solicitors and surveyors. He is recommended by Legal 500 in this area as well where he is recognised as being “responsive and knows his stuff”.

Ryan has a busy, broad-based commercial practice with a particular emphasis on insolvency. He is a sought-after trial and appellate advocate, having acted in a number of cases of wider commercial significance for the client. Ryan welcomes instructions to act as sole counsel or as part of a team and has been led in the High Court and Supreme Court.

He advises and acts in respect of (amongst other things) antecedent transactions, misfeasance, and litigation brought by office-holders. Within the wide category of commercial litigation, he has experience in matters relating to contractual disputes, civil fraud, partnerships and LLPs, professional negligence, financial regulation, unjust enrichment, and of cases with an international dimension (including injunctive relief and cross-border insolvencies).
