Kirkpatrick and another v Snoozebox Ltd

Company – Liquidator. The defendant company sought to strike out the contractual claim brought by the claimant joint liquidators in their own name on the ground that they had no power or standing to bring the claim. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claim was not of the nature such that the liquidators were entitled to bring the claim in their own names. However, the claim would not be struck out at the present stage because the liquidators ought to have the opportunity to consider their position.
