Excellent track record of settling insolvency disputes cost-effectively

Litigation is always a possibility when a company can’t pay its debts, even if the business itself is still viable. Professional legal expertise is the best option for all parties.

Our experienced insolvency team supports shareholders, creditors, directors and insolvency practitioners on any aspect of disputes arising from corporate insolvency or individual bankruptcy.

We have an excellent track record of settling insolvency disputes by working with all parties to reach practical and cost-effective solutions.

If you are a creditor with a secured or unsecured debt, we can advise you on your rights and offer strategic advice to maximise recovery of the debt owed to you.

Where a debtor refuses to pay, we can apply to make them bankrupt or wind up the company. We can also provide robust advice on potential recovery actions against directors or shareholders.

If your business is facing financial distress, we can provide a range of support which may allow you to continue trading. This might include corporate restructuring and applying for validation orders to allow specific transactions in relation to a bank account that has been frozen by the court. Alternatively, we can guide you on the appropriate insolvency processes.

Our insolvency specialists have considerable experience when it comes to defending your business against winding up petitions. We also defend claims against shareholders and directors, including director disqualification actions.

Our focus is always on working actively and with professionalism and expertise to settle disputes without recourse to the courts, but if needed, we have the resources and experience to litigate matters all the way to a full trial and beyond.

If you would like to discuss your personal circumstances with an insolvency expert, contact a member of our specialist team at St Albans, Harpenden or Luton.
