Game Over - or Soon Will Be

    February 2014
    This week will hopefully see the end of a long running battle between Britain's biggest landlords and the restructuring profession. On 12 February, the Court of Appeal will start to hear an appeal relating to the administration of Game Station (Jervis v Pillar Denton). It will consider whether the administrators should pay rent for the properties which they occupied during the administration as an administration expense, so ensuring the landlords receive their rent in priority to all other payments made to other creditors.
