Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update

Did you know... that the court may, in special circumstances, exercise its discretion to appoint pre-existing receivers as a company's provisional liquidators.

In the recent decision of Re K Vision International Investment (Hong Kong) Limited, the Honourable Mr. Justice Barma confirmed that, where the circumstances require it, the court will exercise its discretion to appoint pre-existing receivers of a company's assets as that company's provisional liquidators provided that potential conflicts of interest are identified and appropriately addressed.
