Halliwells partners to be questioned for report into firm's collapse
Former Halliwells partners are to be interviewed by BDO next year as the administrator attempts to determine the specific reasons for the firm's demise. BDO's Dermot Power and Shay Bannon are set to interview a significant number of ex-partners before producing a report on the period surrounding the collapse for the Insolvency Service. The report to the government body will look at whether the insolvency could have been avoided, and aims to identify whether the actions of any partners contributed to the collapse and the shortfall now facing the firm's creditors.
