Are there any IP-savvy insolvency practitioners in the UK?

On Monday one of the IPKat's sister weblogs, IP Finance, published this inquiry which was made by a reader:
"Do you know of any UK insolvency practitioners who are familiar with the issues relating to intellectual property in the event of insolvency?

... We have put together some advice on what might happen to the IP and the potential risks in the event of the various forms of insolvency procedures etc. We have also given thought to ways of structuring the transaction, and drafting terms which may make the client less vulnerable.

We are now considering factoring in the views and experience of an insolvency practitioner, particularly in relation to the finer details of the insolvency law. Given how topical this is, it is surprisingly difficult to identify someone with the right skills set. Do you have any suggestions?"
Presumably for perfectly justifiable reasons but to the complete surprise of the IP Finance blog team, not a single response was received. Accordingly the IPKat is asking readers of this blog: If you are, or know of, a UK insolvency practitioner who has genuine experience of dealing with IP rights (i.e. genuine and positively constructive experience of IP rights) can you please email the IPKat here and he will publish the list for all to see. Please head the email IP Insolvency so that the Kat can easily spot it.

  1. My guess is that they might be a tad busy at the moment ...


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
