R v N and S (2017 - 2018)

Selva defended an entrepreneur against allegations of fraudulent removal of property prior to winding up (s.206 Insolvency Act).

The prosecution alleged that a significant sum of money had been diverted away from creditors. Selva negotiated a considerably reduced figure by demonstrating commercially justifiable reasons for the use of the majority of the funds. The consequence was that an exceptional outcome was achieved - immediate custody was avoided and crucially for the client, after hearing lengthy submissions on the relevant law, the judge made no order under the Company Directors Disqualification Act.
