Phillip Patterson helps draw up Protocol for Virtual Statutory Declarations

20 May 2020

Phillip Patterson recently put together a protocol with LexisNexis covering virtual statutory declarations.

Statutory declarations are a necessary part of insolvency proceedings, most commonly where a company enters members’ voluntary liquidation (MVL) (see section 89 of the Insolvency Act 1986 (IA 1986)) and where a company enters administration by an out of court appointment (see the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016 (IR 2016), SI 2016/1024, r 3.17).

The Law Society has now adopted this protocol which you can view here.
