hlw Keeble Hawson insolvency specialist, Robert Brown, has presented at the recent Insolvency Practitioners Association’s flagship UK annual conference.
Robert, who has more than 30 years’ experience in insolvency practice, spoke about the administration of insolvent estates upon death – and, in particular, Deceased Persons Orders, their key provisions and possible alternatives. He also outlined how a case he handled in the 1990s led to a change in the law on the transfer of the matrimonial home.
Entitled When it gets personal, the conference at the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Club was attended by 150 delegates from the personal insolvency and debt solutions sector in England and Wales.
Robert, who works in the firm’s Leeds office, said: “Personal insolvency law is a specialised field that must be practised with great sensitivity, since emotions often run high on all sides – even more so when it involves the insolvent estates of persons who have died.
“The event is an ideal ‘best practice forum’ which enables attendees to keep up-to-date on all options and regulatory changes.”
