RMJM seeks to settle Winding-Up Petition Debt to avoid Order
July 31 2013
As reported earlier this month, a winding-up petition against architects Robert Matthew Johnson Marshall (RMJM) has been filed at the Court of Session in Edinburgh by one of its former directors.
Lawyers representing former directors of RMJM, are claiming £167,594 in missing wages, redundancy payments and expenses, lodged the petition last week and a hearing was scheduled at the Court of Session in Edinburgh. The petition was set to be adjourned.
The Architects Journal reports that a deal has now been struck whereby RMJM will pay the Claimant’s solicitors, Simpson & Marwick £25,000 to adjourn the hearing delay or avoid any winding up petition order. It is reported that if this amount is received, RMJM will have to set out how the company intends to pay the remaining undisputed amount.
