Law firms owed millions of pounds by Lehman Brothers have been missed off a list of trade creditors issued last Tuesday (4 November) by administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
The London offices of Allen & Overy, Ashurst, Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft and Clifford Chance are just four of the firms missing.
“It’s all a complete bloody mess,” exclaimed one creditor missing from the list.
The London offices of Clifford Chance Secretaries (the firm’s company secretarial service), Davies Arnold Cooper, Nabarro and Slaughter and May are the only UK firms to be listed, together with the City branches of US firms Bingham McCutchen, McDermott Will & Emery, Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker, Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom and Weil Gotshal & Manges.
A PwC spokesperson said:“That was our best stab at the time, but we’ve asked anyone who was missed off to contact us. We have to rely on the data held by the company and that might not be complete.”
