Hellas Telecommunications (Luxembourg) II Sca, Joint Liquidators of v Slaughter and May (A Firm): ChD 13 Jun 2014

Appeal by the liquidators of a company against the refusal of the Registrar to order that the fees of solicitors employed by the administrators previously in office, which have been agreed and paid by the administrators, should nevertheless be assessed by the court. It raises issues as to the effect of r7.34 of the Insolvency Rules, which provides that such fees may be fixed either by agreement of the responsible insolvency practitioner or by assessment, in circumstances where a liquidator disagrees with the decision of his predecessor.
