The Insolvency Practice Group (IPG) was recently formed to allow Insolvency Practitioners from all sized firms to discuss cutting edge and practical issues that appointment takers have to deal with such as; conflicts that arise in taking appointments; financing the rescue; personal liability of practitioners; scope and efficacy of insurance cover; cancellation of onerous contracts, levels of fees and charging of success fees; conducting investigations; publishing and approval of the restructuring plan; valuations of and disposals of assets.

The newly formed Insolvency Practice Group (IPG) is pleased to introduce a new line of communication for INSOL’s members, this will be a monthly vlog where issues will be addressed by members of the committee and other leading experts from around the world.  The first vlog will be available on 10 September.
