Crumpler and another (Joint liquidators of Peak Hotels and Resorts Ltd in liquidation) v Candey Ltd

Company – Liquidation. The appellant liquidators' appeal failed, in a case concerning money paid into court as security for the respondent solicitors' fees, by a company that had entered liquidation. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the company had retained the property in the money that it had paid into court, the money had thus continued to be one of its existing assets, and so it had been able to charge its interest in it to the solicitors by the charge.
