This one-day session examines how to identify and mount an appropriate defense to a charging order, using knowledge of both Civil Procedure Rules and case law. It also considers orders for sale in bankruptcy: the procedure that the official receiver has to follow to force a sale, and what options are open to a client when faced with such an action.
