(UK) Lock v Stanley Update: the Final Word on Assignment of Insolvency Claims?


The Supreme Court has refused permission for the case of Lock v Stanley to be appealed, meaning that the Court of Appeal’s approach to questions around the assignment by a liquidator of claims in the insolvent estate stands.

Most notably the Court of Appeal confirmed that a liquidator is under no duty to offer defendants the right to acquire the claims against them unless the failure to do so would be perverse.

For full details of the case and commentary about the Court of Appeal judgment see our previous blog.
