Two insolvency practitioner ran an insolvency practitioner practice as an LLP. During this time one partner (P1) was trustee in one particular bancruptcy estate, which he completed and a final creditors' meeting was called and final dividends were paid. P1 acquired the consent of the creditors to be paid his fees on a time basis. Before he paid himself from the estate, P1 died. The LLP partnership was later disolved. His former partner, P2, (also an Insolvency Practitioner) is now looking to recover the fees generated by P1. However, the consent of the creditors to payment (on a time basis) of P1's fees has been lost.

 

An application for payment of fees in the absence of creditors' consent can be made by a trustee by rule 6.141(1) of the Insolvency rules 1986 (ie where he is seeking to be paid under rule 6.138(6) and 6.138A.) However, P1 is no longer in office (since he vacated and was released after completing the bankruptcy) and the partnership no longer exists.

 

Does P2 have any way of obtaining the fees generated by P2 during the course of thie LLP partnership?

 

Kind regards.

This site is now saying that the question's status is "finished" and that my question has been answered. Do I need to do anything specific to correct this (as plainly I am still seeking a substantive reply)?

I am so sorry for the delay in replying but unfortunately this answer is incorrect.

 

After further research it transpires that anyone other than a trustee of the estate of the deceased Mr xX would not have locus standi under the insolvency legislation to make the application. The correct procedure is for IP2 (the remaining insolvency practitioner) to seek appointment as trustee of the estate of the former bankrupt from the Official Receiver, (after procuring the approval or at least the non-objection from the majority of the creditors), on the basis that an asset in the former bankrupt's estate (ie the money held by the insolvency partners' firm) remains to be dealt with as a result of IP1's (the deceased practitioner's) default. After being re-appointed, IP2 can make the application and distribute the money to his firm and/or as per the court's direction.
