Insolvency

We offer a comprehensive service in respect of all matters relating to both corporate and personal insolvency – whether acting for office holders, creditors or debtors.

Members of chambers are acknowledged experts in this field, with counsel being listed in Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500. Members also being commissioned to write the Corporate Insolvency and Personal Insolvency volumes of LexisNexis’s Encyclopaedia of Forms and Precedents.

Expertise

Members of chambers have experience of a whole host of matters that are encountered with insolvency litigation, whether that be applications being made within insolvency proceedings or other matters such as applications to set aside statutory demands, to restrain winding up petitions, to restrain advertisement of petitions or for administration orders. Members are also able to deal with the full range of transaction avoidance work, for example, transactions defrauding creditors, preferences and transactions at undervalue.

Certain members also have significant experience in directors’ disqualification work, the defence of such proceedings and also the obtaining of permission to act despite disqualification.
