It is "Akkurate" to say that the English Court has jurisdiction to make extra-territorial orders under S.236 of the IA 1986 against EU resident parties

Samuel Hodge Hodge takes a look at the important judgment – handed down today (4 June 2020) – in Wolloff and another v Calzaturificio Rodolfo Zengarini SRL and another [2020] EWHC 1433 (Ch). The Chancellor held that although s.236 of the Insolvency Act 1986 does not itself have extra-territorial effect, the 2000 Regulation does confer on the English Court the extra-territorial jurisdiction to make orders under s.236 against EU resident parties.

James Pickering QC appeared for the successful Liquidators.
