Online CPD – Scottish Referral Network

In our CPD seminar series hosted for solicitors in our Scottish Referral Network we share insight into a different specialist practice area each quarter. At our event on 5 October, our specialists discussed the main issues to be aware of when you’re working on complex restructuring and insolvency matters.

Our discussion included:

  • directors’ liabilities post insolvency
  • challenges to directors after dissolution of a company
  • the process of the appointment of a liquidator
