OVERVIEW: Life After Bresco – adjudication enforcement and insolvency

In what circumstances can an insolvent company enforce an adjudicator’s decision in its favour? The Supreme Court in Michael J Lonsdale (Electrical) Ltd v Bresco Electrical Services Ltd (in liquidation) [2020] UKSC 25 opened the door to insolvent companies and their funders to bringing adjudications and then enforcing them, but the TCC has now made it clear that it will be an uphill battle for them. In these episodes, Marion Smith QC, John Denis-Smith, David Sawtell and Rebecca Drake will dissect a workshop problem question to explain the practical difficulties and how to avoid them.
