On Thursday 3 November, the Restructuring and Insolvency Lawyers' Network co-hosted a seminar entitled "Sports Roundup: A Legal Update" with members of 3-4 South Square and Dundas & Wilson. The seminar and the drinks receptions before and afterwards were extremely well attended.
The session covered a broad range of thought-provoking topics, including the use of administrations and CVAs in the context of football club restructurings and insolvencies, the key aspects of sports disciplinary tribunals, recent developments in relation to regulation of The Football League and the "football creditors rule" in the context of the anti-deprivation principle.
Speakers were Mark Phillips QC, Hilary Stonefrost and Daniel Bayfield of 3-4 South Square, John Verrill of Dundas & Wilson and Nick Craig, Director of Legal Affairs at The Football League.
The audience included members of the R&I Lawyers' Network and the ILA, other members of the wider legal profession, insolvency practitioners and beyond.
The Restructuring Research Scholarship was introduced in 2014 to support PhD research in the field of insolvency or restructuring law at a UK institution.
A key service provided by the ILA is the provision of bulletins keeping it’s membership up-to-date with the latest developments in insolvency law.
Below are a selection of recent topics covered:
