Dividends, defrauding creditors and directors’ duties: BTI 2014 LLC v Sequana SA [2019] EWCA Civ 112








Exchange Chambers, 201 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 3NW

In this session, David Mohyuddin QC and Carly Sandbach from our Insolvency Department will review this very recent decision of the Court of Appeal.

The case concerned two questions. First, is section 423 of the Insolvency Act 1986 capable of applying to the payment of otherwise lawful dividends? Second, when and in what circumstances does the duty of directors arise to have regard to the interests of creditors?

David and Carly will take delegates through the Court of Appeal’s reasoning and answers to those two questions, offering their views on the case and identifying further questions that now arise.

This seminar will be of interest to all those advising on insolvency and company matters and we look forward to you joining us for what we anticipate will be a heavily over-subscribed event.

Coffee and registration will be held from 16:45 – 17:15 with the talks finishing at 18:15.
