Re Bishop; Golstein v Bishop and another

Solicitor – Partnership. The Chancery Division considered an appeal from a decision of a district judge, in which she had refused the appellant's application for revocation of a decision passing a proposal that the first respondent enter into an individual voluntary arrangement (IVA). The court held that there had been a material error in the failure by the respondent to disclose, among other things, proceedings against him by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal in his IVA proposal and to the creditors prior to a meeting in which the appellant was allowed to enter into the IVA.
