Link: Firm avoids Dome action
Robson Rhodes’ appointment was backed by the New Millennium Experience Company, operators of the dome, who claimed creditor status because of £400,000 in legal costs it said was owed by GME.
Should the application prove successful, a new liquidator is expected to take legal action against the government, former culture minister Peter Mandelson, the Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer, and liquidators of the doomed Millennium Dome, KPMG.
The application against Robson Rhodes, made last week by property tycoon Robert Robinson, a founder of GME, which staged millennium exhibitions at the Royal Naval College, will be heard on 20 July.
Creditors to GME believe that David Mond, an insolvency specialist with Manchester-based accountants Hodgsons, should take over. Mond originally offered £10,000 of his own money to act as liquidator.
‘We are trying to remove Kevin Hellard (of Robson Rhodes) as compulsory liquidator of GME, and appoint David Mond,’ said Robinson.
Sean Cannon, a manager at Robson Rhodes who is working with partner Kevin Hellard on the liquidation, said the firm was ‘continuing to do its job, mindful of the fact that nothing is certain’.
