The perceived impartiality of administrators employed by the beleaguered Channel Ten is being examined by the Federal Court of Australia.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has raised concerns about the perceived independence of appointed firm KordaMentha, which started work on February 28 this year, some months ahead of Channel Ten going into administration on June 14.

In Melbourne on Monday, KordaMentha's lawyer Leon Zwier argued the administrators were "highly supervised" and did not have a pre-existing relationship with board members.
