A business rescue practitioner is a person appointed, or two or more persons jointly appointed, to oversee a company during business rescue. While the Act defines a business rescue practitioner as one or more persons, the business rescue provisions of the Act do not necessarily refer to or support joint appointment. Further, the word “person” in the Act includes a juristic person. It is therefore arguable that a company can take appointment as a business rescues practitioner (section 128(1)(d)).
