Our work for Insolvency Practitioners:
We have valued relationships with insolvency practitioners across the country and regularly act for them in realising assets and with the myriad of issues which arise.
We often work alongside them in the period leading up to formal insolvency, helping directors and business owners understand the options and delivering the best outcome for stakeholders.
Our litigation work includes both routine applications and a number of complex and high value actions up to Supreme Court level.
In recent years we have been sought out by a number of insolvency practitioners to represent them in investigations by regulators and disciplinary proceedings, and in handling queries which arise during monitoring visits. We blend technical insolvency knowledge with experience in professional disciplinary procedure to best present these reputationally sensitive, high stakes cases.
