Gwinnutt (as the First Defendant's Trustee in Bankruptcy) v George and another

Insolvency – Bankrupt's estate. A non-contractual arrangement entered into by a barrister to perform work for a fee, was not one that vested in his Trustee in Bankruptcy. The Chancery Division held that the 'expectation' of payment under that arrangement was not one that vested in the Trustee as 'property' within the meaning of the Insolvency Act 1986.
