Insolvency (Scotland) Rules - 6 months on

The long awaited Scottish corporate insolvency rules finally came into effect on 6 April 2019, heralding a modernisation of process and language, and radically altering the way that we communicate with creditors. As always with substantive new legislation, it’s only after it is in force for a while, that issues arise, or interpretations vary.


This course examines the application of the new Rules in practice, and some of the consequences, intended or unintended, of implementation. It is also an opportunity to discuss revised approaches with fellow professionals and explore solutions for any of the difficulties you may have with the new Rules.
