As a company director, there may come a time when you experience financial difficulties and face legal issues as result. In such a situation, you should always seek expert advice at the earliest opportunity.

As well as having obligations to act in the best interests of the company, you must also act in the best interests of the creditors too. A director who acts in breach of their duties may expose themselves to personal liability or commit a criminal offence.

We can advise you on complex related matters before, during and after a company has entered formal insolvency proceedings.

Our dedicated Insolvency and Corporate Recovery Group advises businesses on all aspects of business recovery, corporate restructuring and insolvency. We specialise in providing advice on company rescues, management buy-outs, schemes of arrangement, administrations (including pre-pack administrations), company voluntary arrangements, compulsory liquidation and creditors’ voluntary liquidation.

The group draws on lawyers based in our corporate, employment, property and dispute resolution departments to ensure that you are provided with comprehensive advice on all aspects of your business.
