The Law of Administrators and Receivers of Companies

The Centre for Business and Insolvency Law is pleased to announce that Paula Moffatt, a Reader in the Nottingham Law School, was recently appointed Assistant to the Editorial Board of the well-known publication Lightman and Moss’ “The Law of Administrators and Receivers of Companies”. This influential text, now in its 5th edition, is an important reference point for insolvency practitioners and has been cited before the courts in insolvency matters. It is considered the authority on the law relating to administrators and receivers in the context of procedures under the Insolvency Act 1986 and is addressed to practitioners dealing with corporate insolvency matters.

The Editorial Board is made up of Sir Gavin Lightman, Gabriel Moss QC, Hamish Anderson, Professor Ian Fletcher and Richard Snowden QC, who are eminent members of the judiciary, academia and practice. Paula’s role will be to support the Editorial Board in ensuring that the publication remains up-to-date and reflects contemporary developments in the world of domestic and cross-border insolvency. She has had considerable experience in this, having edited and published the Centre’s Insolvency Bulletin since 2012 as well as writing on developments in practice more generally, her most recent piece in the Solicitors’ Journal commenting on the decision of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (SRA) to cease to authorise solicitors to act as insolvency practitioners. This is a particular concern for practitioners due to the risk of dual regulation in the future by a specialist insolvency regulator in addition to the SRA with the possibility of ensuing double jeopardy. This concern has also been reflected in an online article in The Times published on 30 April 2015.
