Even if you don’t “do” insolvency, your client or the opposing party could become insolvent. If your client is insolvent, you need to know what restrictions there are on issuing proceedings and continuing to trade. If the other party is insolvent, you need to know how to issue a bankruptcy petition (in the case of an individual) or a winding-up petition (in the case of a company or partnership). With that in mind, this mini-series will discuss what junior property and commercial litigators need to know about Insolvency.
Part one will be held on 24 September. Part two will follow on 30 September.
