At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
Since at least the mid 19th century, the English courts have admitted a common law principle of insolvency law referred to in contemporary parlance as the "anti-deprivation rule" (the "ADR"), and known historically as "fraud on the bankruptcy laws"1. The basic premise of the ADR is that a device through which a bankrupt estate is denuded of an asset in fraud of the bankruptcy laws is in essence void as a matter of policy.
