Solicitors in Essex & London
Our commercial litigation and dispute resolution team have considerable practical experience of dealing with corporate and personal insolvency, both from the perspective of advising creditors in relation to money that they may be owed by an insolvent company or individual, but also in advising companies with cash-flow difficulties or individuals that cannot pay debts as they fall due.
Recommended by the Legal 500, our commercial litigation and dispute resolution team regularly act for a number of insolvency practitioners (following their appointments as liquidators, administrators and trustees in bankruptcy) and also companies or individuals who find themselves subject to the insolvency process for example, after having received a statutory demand, winding up petition or bankruptcy petition.
Our commercial litigation and dispute resolution team are also able to assist with the corporate aspects of debt restructuring and refinance. We can offer expert legal assistance to directors of companies in financial difficulties with issues such as trading whilst insolvent, personal guarantees and directors’ loans, or the threat of disqualification as a company director. We also advise creditors of customers in financial difficulties on debt recovery options and retention of title issues.
Situations involving the non-payment of a debt, and then the insolvency processes that may follow, can be stressful for all concerned. We have a wealth of experience of negotiating with creditors regarding repayment and restructuring of debts, to resolve the matter and enable you or your business to move on.
Our commercial litigation and dispute resolution team cover the following areas:
If you require further legal advice relating to insolvency, please feel free to contact any of our commercial litigation solicitors directly.
