Jodie has swiftly developed a strong commercial and insolvency practice.
She regularly represents office holders, creditors and debtors in both routine and contested matters, including:
- private examinations and delivery up applications;
- transactions defrauding creditors;
- urgent applications to restrain the presentation and advertisement of winding up petitions;
- applications for possession and sale, both at first instance and appeal level;
- bankruptcy annulment applications under both limbs of section 282(1);
- applications to set aside statutory demands, both at first instance and appeal level;
- preliminary hearings in disputed winding up petitions listed to deal with the ‘coronavirus test’ following the introduction of CIGA; and
- applications to extend the period of an office holder’s interest in the home of a bankrupt to avoid its automatic revesting.
In addition, Jodie has experience in a range of Insolvency Act applications: she is often instructed to draft the same, and she frequently appears in the applications list of the High Court. She also regularly advises in personal and corporate insolvency matters (both formally and informally).
Jodie is a member of the General Technical Committee of R3 and has had her work on aspects of creditor enforcement in administration and the ‘new’ moratorium published in Sweet & Maxwell’s Insolvency Intelligence.
