David Standish and John Milsom of KPMG were appointed compulsory liquidators over solicitors firm Follett Stock LLP and Follett Stock Holdings Limited on Monday 4th November.
David Standish, joint liquidator commented that: “The Solicitors Regulatory Authority intervened following a winding up order coming into effect against Follett Stock LLP and Follett Stock Holdings Limited. As a direct consequence of the winding up order being made 30 remaining staff at Follett Stock’s offices in London and Truro have unfortunately been made redundant.”
The liquidators at KPMG will now seek to investigate the affairs of the firms and determine the assets which can be realised to benefit the creditors.
Standish, added: “The joint liquidators are currently reviewing the affairs of the firms. Anyone who believes they are a creditor or has any information regarding the firms or their affairs should write to the joint liquidators at KPMG LLP, 8 Salisbury Square, London EC4Y 8BB.”
KPMG are working closely with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”) and any clients of the firms should contact the intervention agent appointed by the SRA, Lester Aldridge LLP, who can be contacted on 01202 786341 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
