Our international commercial litigation team recently acted for a significant number of creditors, involving high profile international commercial and investment banks and finance houses in applications for proofs of debt against a Cypriot Holding company under compulsory liquidation. The Cypriot Holding Company is part of a non EU based group engaged in heavy machinery utilisation and the aggregate amount of debts which were defaulted by the said company (and owed to the creditors represented by our firm) exceed 350 million Euros. The identified creditors were invited to submit their proofs to the liquidator and our team undertook to prepare and verify the details of each claim and to submit those for the purpose of assessment by the liquidator. Based on our recent experience we have drafted this memo which we believe will help identifying the issues relating to proofs of debt.
