with Gearoid Costelloe
This course will examine historic mistakes in group structuring, and provide participants with an overview of the law in relation to the remedies available under Companies Act 2014 to a liquidator, creditor or receiver, to capture assets in related group companies, where another member of the group becomes insolvent. The CPD will focus on the wide legal definition of “ related companies “, the use of “Golden Shares “, and the implications of “ Contribution Orders” and “ Pooling Orders “ under Companies Act 2014.
This course will also suggest areas where reorganising group structures may dilute the impact of the sanctions in the Companies Act 2014 in order to protect group assets.
