A clause in a settlement agreement, which provided that an indemnity would cease on a company's insolvency, infringed the anti-deprivation principle as it deprived the insolvent company's administrators of an asset for distribution to creditors. A purported "contracting out" of the insolvency legislation was contrary to public policy and the clause was void (Folgate London Market Ltd v Chaucer Insurance Plc www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2011/328.html).
