The applicant was an insolvency practitioner, appointed as liquidator in some 116 insolvencies. He was moving to a different firm, and sought to be relieved from his duty to act in these cases. Such applications must be judged on their individual merits. In this case, his new duties would detract from his ability properly to supervise the liquidations, and he had not taken with him the staff who had been employed in dealing with the cases. Those factors suggested that it would be more economic to transfer the appointments. In this case, it was satisfactory to merely advertise the change of appointments, rather than to write to each creditor individually.
