Junior Programme: Insolvency and Commercial

Join us for ‘Navigating Knowledge – Establishing Knowledge in Claims for Breach of Directors’ duties’ and ‘Privilege in Corporate Investigations’ presented by Katie Longstaff and James Fagan on Tuesday, 17 October, 17:30-21:00.

Katie will consider the challenges commonly faced by parties in assessing whether directors had the requisite state of knowledge to give rise to a breach of duty action in an insolvency context. In doing so she will consider the recent case law, including Hunt v Singh [2023] EWHC 1784 (Ch).

Corporate investigations present unique difficulties for lawyers and their clients seeking to ensure findings and work products are confidential and protected by legal privilege. James will provide an overview of the risks to privilege in investigations and how to manage them and a consideration of the decision in Al Sadeq v Dechert & Ors [2023] EWHC 795 (KB).

This seminar is an in-person event only and will be hosted at Arundel House.

Junior Programme events are aimed at recently qualified lawyers and consist of an hour long webinar covering topical issues such as recent case law. The webinars will however provide a helpful refresher for more experienced practitioners and we welcome all of those who are interested in joining. Please do forward this invite as appropriate.
