An engaging session exploring post-petition void dispositions and what is an unlawful return of capital?

The ILA would like to invite you to the next SW regional training event on Tuesday 14 November 2017 when we will be delighted to welcome the much respected academic, former Chancery Master and now specialist Chancery judge, His Honour Judge Matthews who will explore post petition void dispositions.

This subject is timely following recent caselaw, including the decisions in Akers v Samba Financial Group [2017] UKSC 6; [2017] 2 WLR 713 and Officeserve Technologies Ltd (In Liquidation) v Wood [2017] EWHC 1920 (Ch) and promises to be interesting and thought-provoking.

We are also delighted to confirm the Judge's co-speaker will be Imogen Moore of Bristol University, who will consider the question often asked by insolvency professionals seeking to clawback benefits paid to or for shareholders: " what is an unlawful return of capital?"

Registration: 4.30pm for 5pm start
Drinks from 6.30/7pm
Venue: Osborne Clarke LLP
2 Temple Back East,

The cost of attendance is £40.00 (plus VAT) for ILA members and £50.00 (plus VAT) for non members. Please complete the booking form and return to Jacqui Knight (details on the booking form). A VAT invoice will be issued on request.

Previous ILA seminars in Bristol have been very well attended and you are encouraged to book as soon as possible.

We look forward to seeing you for what we know will be both an engaging and illuminating evening.
