Insolvency Litigation

We have an experienced team of solicitors who specialise in all aspects relating to financial issues and can assist if you or your business is facing and dealing a situation in which you, or the business, may become insolvent.  Alternatively, we can assist if you wish to commence a formal insolvency process.

We regularly advise and represent Insolvency Practitioners, companies, directors and individuals in all aspects of business and personal insolvency.   This includes regularly representing clients in the High Court and County Court and we have, therefore, a rare perspective of being able to represent our clients from both sides of the fence.  This area of law is highly technical, and full of traps for the unwary.  Every matter is different and with many years of experience in this specialist area of law we are able to provide cost effective clear, concise, straight talking advice.

We can advise on the preservation and realisation of assets either for companies or individuals.  We can help you explore debt restructuring options and informal arrangements with creditors.  If the worst is unavoidable, we can guide businesses or individuals through the appropriate insolvency procedures.

We can advise and assist on all issues which arise both prior to, during and after insolvency.  An overall strategic approach to the insolvency life-cycle is essential from an asset protection perspective.

We work closely with our debt recovery team who can assist in recovering debts in a cost efficient and effective manner.  We also work alongside specialist funders and qualified Insolvency Practitioners.
