Insolvency Litigation

Our Dispute Resolution team provides advice and representation to individuals, companies and insolvency practitioners, in relation to a wide variety of contentious insolvency issues, working closely with our firm’s Corporate and Commercial team. Insolvency legislation in particular has changed a number of times since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and our team works hard to ensure that they keep up to date with all new developments.

 

Our team advise individuals and businesses on the recovery of assets and payments from either individuals or entities that are at risk of insolvency, and often achieves settlement early on by way of serving a statutory demand, or subsequently by serving a petition. We also provide advice to directors who have been presented with a claim following the winding up of their company, often as a result of there being allegations such as wrongful trading, preferential payments or a director’s loan.

 

We have good relationships with leading insolvency practitioners in the region and assist with issues on their behalf such as debt or asset recovery, and instigating claims against former company directors.

 

The types of matters that our team are able to assist with include:

  • Service of statutory demands;
  • Bankruptcy and Winding Up Petitions;
  • Misfeasance and breach of directors’ duties;
  • Transactions defrauding creditors;
  • Transactions at an undervalue; and
  • Unlawful dividends or payments.
