In the matter of H S Works Limited

Judgment delivered today in the Business and Property Court (Insolvency and Companies List ChD) in which Daniel Lewis appeared for the Respondent and instructed by Moon Beever.

The application of the CPR to proceedings which are subject to the Insolvency Rules has been the source of considerable uncertainty for some time. This uncertainty has included the extent to which the provisions of Part 7 apply to Insolvency Applications - a question which may have potentially serious effects on proceedings at or near limitation.

In this judgment Deputy Insolvency and Companies Judge Prentis resolves these questions and more generally the role of the CPR in insolvency claims.
