Three ex-partners of the collapsed Liverpool firm Deacon Goldrein Green were declared bankrupt last week. The bankruptcy orders were made against Martin Green, Patricia Reynolds and Robert Ollerhead at Liverpool County Court on Tuesday. But the District Judge Elliot Knopf ordered any further action to be stayed pending appeals which the three solicitors say they are considering. They all objected unsuccessfully to the orders, made following a two-and-a-half day hearing in chambers. Former Deacons partner David Deacon, declared bankrupt in April, had a request for his order to be lifted rejected by Knopf. The firm was one of the largest in the North West, with 18 offices, before its collapse last autumn with debts of several million pounds. Eight partners have already been declared bankrupt and the company has been wound up.
