Recovery & Insolvency

Our highly skilled and experienced Dispute Resolution Team deals with all types of insolvency matters at every step of the economic cycle.

In a tough economic climate, you may be struggling to keep your business afloat and the debts start mounting up. This may result in the business not being able to pay its debts as and when they fall due, resulting in the onset of insolvency.

Whether the debts involved are consumer debts, tax liabilities or highly complex cases, we will advise you on the best course of action for you and your business.

We are well equipped to deal with any insolvency issues your business might be facing. We act for insolvency practitioners, directors and individuals, offering service excellence and guiding you through the process.

We advise on the options available to you using formal and informal procedures based on your situation, including:

  • Considering all the different options available to the company when facing the onset of insolvency;
  • The viability of a Company Voluntary Arrangement (“CVA”) with the company and all of its creditors;
  • Placing the company into administration, creating a barrier (moratorium) from creditor, bailiff and landlord actions;
  • Assisting directors who face disqualification proceedings;
  • Assisting and dealing with the restoration of a company;
  • Making recession applications which would treat the company as though it had never been wound up:
  • Advising commercial tenants on their rights if their landlord becomes insolvent;
  • Assisting in the compulsory winding up of a company;
  • If you have been subjected to a winding up petition, we assist in seeking emergency validation orders to allow payments out of the company bank accounts lawfully;
  • Assisting in making section 216 applications for you to allow you to reuse a company name of a previously liquidated company.
