Nine former Halliwells partners have won a High Court battle to prevent the failed firm's liquidators from claiming alleged overpaid drawings or tax from them.

BDO has applied to be appointed as liquidator of defunct law firm Halliwells, with the organisation, currently Halliwells’ administrator, taking the first steps towards liquidating the failed firm’s limited liability partnership (LLP). BDO expects a decision on its application in the New Year but CMS Cameron McKenna issued a letter on behalf of the company last month stating BDO’s intention to terminate its appointment as administrator and to instead become the failed firm’s liquidator.

Former Halliwells partner Michael Burns has today (24 April) won a High Court case against the defunct firm's liquidators BDO. The ruling by Mr Justice Warren means the liquidator, which has been attempting to claw back money from ex-partners, will not be able to chase Burns after the judge found he was protected by the terms of his retirement deed.
