The ethics of giving advice: avoiding conflicts of interest

Insolvency practitioners face an inherent conflict of interest in giving advice to an individual or company before accepting a subsequent appointment as office holder. We need to find an approach that allows us to build a relationship with a prospective appointment, while ensuring that they understand the consequences of that very appointment and our role once formally in office.

Concentrating on issues commonly identified by the IPA’s Regulation and Monitoring teams, the next IPA Learning session on 7 July (12:30-14:00) looks at how insolvency practitioners can get their approach to giving advice in insolvency right.

Our director Eileen Maclean is looking forward to speaking at the event alongside Andrew Shaw of South Square.
