Insolvency & Corporate Recovery

Our lawyers are all experts in their chosen specialisms, but you need your advisers to be able to look beyond the specific deal or project to understand your business sector. That is why our lawyers immerse themselves in specific industry sectors, making sure that they understand your business as well as they do their own.

Alongside advice on formal insolvency proceedings, the team advises businesses suffering financial stress – from sole traders through to large public limited companies.  Our specialist lawyers are used to advising on refinancing and restructuring and providing advice to directors on their options and obligations.  They also have considerable experience of advising creditors dealing with businesses in financial difficulty, including security reviews for lenders and advice on retention of title issues for trade creditors.

Typical insolvency litigation cases dealt with by the group include fraud and quasi-fraud, transactional avoidance, wrongful and fraudulent trading, misfeasance and misappropriation of assets, overdrawn directors loan accounts, breaches of contract, professional  and other negligence, recovery of assets and property, realising property interests for trustees in bankruptcy and applications under the provisions of the Insolvency Act 1986 and Insolvency Rules 1986
