The INSOL Insolvency Practitioners Group (INSOL IPG) attracts a wider grouping of INSOL members engaged in appointment taking in insolvency mandates. The group includes both Insolvency Practitioners and their advisors. Established in 2021, IPG provides a highly focused grouping of Insolvency Practitioners from all sized firms and where members can engage, on an ongoing basis, with like-minded professionals on cutting edge and practical issues relevant to the manner in which Insolvency Practitioners conduct their work across the globe. The IPG aims to attract INSOL International members from multiple jurisdictions who are interested and focused on the ongoing and practical challenges that appointment takers deal with, in fulfilling the terms and expectations of their mandate.
The aim of the IPG is to get practitioners into the room to discuss multiple and varied areas of concern and to learn from each other in promoting and enhancing the objective of maximising returns for all stakeholders.
Issues that IPG intends to consider are highly relevant to practice, and includes ; conflicts that arise in taking appointments; financing the rescue; personal liability of practitioners; scope and efficacy of insurance cover; challenges in dealing with multiple stakeholders creditors engagement, cancellation of onerous contracts, levels of fees and charging of success fees; conducting investigations; publishing and approval of the restructuring plan; data protection, environmental issues, employment related issues, and the valuation of and disposal of assets.
The Group is open to all Insolvency Practitioners that are members of INSOL International, irrespective of the size of the Insolvency Practitioner's firm or the complexity of the insolvency / restructuring appointment that are undertaken.
Registration of members must take place with INSOL International and through INSOL 's membership application platform for INSOL IPG.
