On the 29th June at 5pm was our latest Commercial & Insolvency webinar, this month Daniel Black covered the topic of: Insolvency’s Public Examination Hearings: A Quick Fire Look at the Whys and the Whats.
One of the lesser known tools of the Official Receiver (OR) in the collection of information on a bankrupt is to apply to court for the bankrupt’s public examination prior to the bankrupt’s discharge.
Once required in every case, the procedure is now often used where a bankrupt has failed to co-operate with the OR. While the examination is not to be used as a fishing expedition, it does allow for information to be collated which will assist the OR and/or any subsequently appointed trustee in bankruptcy with their enquiries.
In this quick fire webinar, Daniel Black revisits recent High Court experience of the process, its whys and whats, and considers how best to approach the process.
