The corporate insolvency team has many years of experience equally acting for Insolvency Practitioners, enabling them to fulfil their role as office holder, and creditors, lenders, companies and their directors.
We pride ourselves on our ability to give succinct clear and commercial advice to our clients. We are able to assist with all types of corporate insolvency from administrations, receiverships and liquidations, to company voluntary arrangements, particularly in the area of debt recovery and claims under sections 238, 239, 335A, 339 and 340 of the Insolvency Act 1986.
Our non-contentious team has a wealth of experience in buying and selling businesses and assets out of administration and liquidation, acting for both the buyer and the selling Insolvency Practitioner and we pride ourselves in our ability to act expeditiously and effectively which is necessary in relation to these types of transactions.
The contentious team finds itself frequently either bringing winding up proceedings or defending them in the Companies Court.
We regularly represent liquidators and administrators in all forms of proceedings surrounding corporate insolvencies.
The team also has experience of acting for business owners and former directors of insolvent companies facing Directors Disqualification or wrongful trading proceedings. Frequently the team acts in assisting individuals where they face a demand to make payment under personal guarantees or other forms of security.
