  • It has been known to happen that admins keep significant creditors onside by making noises about their admitted claim if said creditors happened to sit on a committee that approves said admins drawings for remuneration. But obviously not here.
    Landlords have also been known to hide behind rates and other voids by leaving the lease in the bust vehicle until re-let. But obviously not here either. It would be inappropriate to suggest that here. So I am not.

  • Whether or not the unexpired portion of the lease can or cannot be counted it is very clear that the partners of what turned out to be a moribund organisation in management terms should have to carry the equivalent of a 'health warning'. Surely no first rate firm would have taken a Halliwells partner to thier bosom without first checking their credentials. Or would they?

  • It will be interesting to know if any PGs have been given by any "partners" at Halliwells and if it is likely anyone will be subsequently be made bankrupt as a consequence. When Fox Hayes went down the tubes Steven Coupland was made bankrupt shortly after so it can not be ruled out.
    Any inside information !

  • The anonymous post at 4:23 pm on 15 February had me rolling on the floor with laughter!
    Like me, you're obviously a lawyer with experience of such things that never happen. Unlike me, you're a talented comedy writer. Have you thought about giving up the day job?
