    It seems from this that Roger Quick is suggesting that lawyers acting for insolvency practitioners (IPs) have been inhibited in adopting the more advanced project management and other approaches that are being used, and demanded by clients, in other areas of the law.
    IPs themselves are well qualified to demand this.
    But IPs are unusual clients – they often have limited funds, which they can, but may not, spend on lawyers to recover more funds. They must decide upon that carefully, with a focus on proportionality. Their lawyers may need to advise them on their responsibilities, including not to litigate at all; rather to pay what money is left to the creditors, and leave risky litigation claims unpursued.
    More could be said, but I look forward to Roger Quick’s analysis.
