By virtue of the Insolvency Act 1986, various transactions entered into by a company or person who subsequently becomes insolvent are void as a matter of law without further order or action.

These void dispositions affect nearly every insolvency (personal and corporate) and are a common feature of any insolvent estate.

This short webinar will explore void dispositions and their features, how they differ between personal and corporate insolvency, and how one might defend against them.

It is suitable for those who act for both office holders and private individuals, and for office holders themselves.
