The creditors’ interest duty: Where are we now and does this matter?
It is well-established that in some circumstances the directors of a company owe a duty not only to the company but also to consider the interests of the creditors of that company. However, establishing the circumstances in which that duty arises is far less certain. Joseph Curl will look at the recent decision in BTI 2014 LLC v Sequana S.A. and will consider whether that decision fundamentally changes the law in this area or is simply more of the same.
Putting the Screws On: Extreme Interim Remedies in Fraud Cases
A survey of some of the heavier weaponry in the fraud litigator’s armoury, including asset disclosure orders, ‘passport orders’, and bench warrants
Rebutting presumptions and proving desire and purpose
Recent decisions such as Abdulali v Finnegan and Re Farrell have provided further guidance on the important issue of what office-holders need to do in order to establish the subjective intention of respondents, including the extent to which the office-holders can rely on presumptions and how respondents can rebut these presumptions. Giselle McGowan will consider recent decisions dealing with this significant aspect of insolvency law.
The cost of this seminar is £90 (£75+vat).
