Contentious insolvency issues are fast moving and complicated. Caught in the eye of the storm you need effective, clear advice provided to you timeously to protect your position.

In short you need someone who knows what they are doing. With our experience in this field we are ideally situated to be able to provide you with the advice you need.

Restructuring and insolvency situations require different skills to those found in other areas of dispute resolution. The rules are far more prescribed, the issues complex and time sensitive, and the consequences of not seeking and obtaining timely advice potentially fatal to your position. In this murky twilight world you need a guide as much as an advisor and our team specialises in navigating this labyrinth on your behalf to best protect your interests and maximise your commercial position.

The problems, risks and solutions that each of our clients face and need vary significantly dependent on which category they fit into. We understand this, and also how the actions of each class of participants can have repercussions for all of the others. Our full service provision in this sector allows us to better understand the motivations of each of the parties and to stay one step ahead. This allows us to deliver better outcomes for our clients that are in keeping with their overriding objectives.

We also advise on claims arising out of insolvency such as wrongful trading, preferences, and transactions at an undervalue, together with presenting and defending insolvency and bankruptcy petitions, and dealing with the Official Receiver and insolvency professionals during the investigatory phase.
