Khaled Metlej was admitted as a solicitor in early 2007, and has been working with Craddock Murray Neumann since 2005 when he joined the firm as a law clerk after answering a question at his job interview that no other applicant for a clerkship has ever been able to answer. He is now enrolled in a Masters Degree.
 
Khaled is now a member of the litigation team at Craddock Murray Neumann and is working predominantly in the areas of commercial litigation and insolvency law, as well as taking responsibility for defamation and criminal litigation matters. Khaled is an integral member of the team providing insolvency law services to a major Government department, and counts senior liquidators and bankruptcy trustees amongst those who engage his services.
 
A highly skilled lawyer with an impressive analytical capacity, Khaled has a breadth of legal knowledge which is highly impressive in someone of his experience. He has the ability to model difficult legal concepts and to provide imaginative insights into a client’s legal position, and hence to provide practical and effective solutions to their legal problems. He has quickly established himself as a “sounding board” for his colleagues.
 
Khaled likes the challenge of complex litigation, and is a confident and articulate advocate in Court. He is also very calm by nature and enjoys a good working relationship with his colleagues and clients.

Date: Sep 02, 2011

A Receiver enjoys a unique position in modern corporations law. While a receiver is appointed as the agent of a corporation, the receiver’s primary purpose is to act in the interests of their appointer in realising the assets of the corporation for the benefit of a secured creditor who has usually appointed the receiver under a contractual right in a debenture.
