The move comes after the venue is being forced to pay out a hefty fine following a trademark battle with the Orient-Express Hotel group. Administrator Ian Franses Associates has been brought in.

The move will come as a blow to the Cipriani brand, which had moved into the corporate hospitality arena. In 2008 flamouyant former QPR chairman Flavio Briatore announced Cipriani would cater in its C and W12 members clubs.

This morning a spokesperson for the club, which Briatore has now left, said the firm was still in place and worked on ‘some' hospitality events, although Azure Support Services is now also listed on the clubs website as a caterer.

Cipriani London is still fighting the trademark ruling.
