Restructuring and Insolvency Faculty

The Restructuring and Insolvency Faculty ("RIF") was the first specialist faculty established by the Institute and was launched in 2008.


The RIF rationalises the structures supporting the practice of insolvency under the Institute into a single, coherent and representative structure. Its operation is overseen by an executive committee.




Membership of the RIF is open to Institute members, lawyers and holders of other relevant professional memberships and/or qualifications, practitioners with suitable experience, and other persons with a relevant interest in the insolvency field are welcome to join.




The RIF holds regular lunchtime seminars on current topics of interest to insolvency practitioners and other networking events. It also produces an e-newsletter, “The IP’s Voice”, to keep RIF members informed of the work of the RIF executive committee ("RIFEC"), RIF activities, legal and regulatory updates, as well as, other developments in the world of restructuring and insolvency.


The RIFEC carries out technical work and also lends support to other Institute initiatives such as the more extensive insolvency training courses.
