Our team has been, and continues to be, heavily engaged in
advising and assisting the executor of the insolvent estate of the
late Duncan Hickman in connection with the estate's administration
and the claims of its many and various creditors. The matter is
bristling with points, including novel questions of law. For
instance, in the absence of settled law on the question the case
has given rise to the formulation of a common-law procedure for the
administration of insolvent estates.
