Insolvency Breakfast Briefing (repeated event due to popular demand)

Friday 5 October 2018
8.30am - 9.30am
Wilberforce Chambers, 8 New Square, Lincoln’s Inn, London WC2A 3QP
1.0 CPD

Wilberforce Chambers’ insolvency team is delighted to invite you to the first of this legal year’s breakfast briefings, featuring two topical talks delivered by Marcia Shekerdemian QC and Jack Watson. Please see below for more information – we hope to see you there.

8.45am: Talk 1
Removal of office holders and conflicts of interest: Marcia Shekerdemian QC 

2018 has (so far!) seen three important decisions, VE Vegas LLC v Shinners [2018] EWHC 186 (Ch), Re Zinc Hotels (Holdings) Ltd [2018] EWHC 1936 (Ch) and Davey v Money [2018] EWHC 766 (Ch). Marcia Shekerdemian QC appeared in VE Vegas and Zinc. This session will consider the impact of these decisions both for IPs and for solicitors , the practical lessons to be learned from them, the management of conflicts and the approach to be taken when considering (or resisting) such applications in the future.

9.00am: Talk 2
Interviews and Private Examinations under section 236 and section 366: Jack Watson

By contrast, this area has been out of the recent legal news, but has lost none of its importance. In this session, Jack Watson will consider the investigative process: when to interview and interview techniques, when to seek an order and how to approach an application. Thinking outside the box and how to use 236/336 in the litigation context (drawing on the use of such techniques in the landmark long-running Saad litigation, in which Jack appeared as junior counsel). Are there any bars to an application? When is the right time and when is it too late?

9.15am: Q&A

9.30am: Coffee and networking

Please note, this event is free of charge to attend. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
