Are you prepared to be paid out of realisations and for us to simply fund your disbursements as you go along?
When it comes to insolvency recovery work, we know what to expect. If there’s a realistic prospect of a recovery being made through our work, then we’re happy to be paid in this way.
Have you done this before?
We’ve handled all kinds of cases, and our team have years of experience between them. We keep up with the changing law and use our commercial experience to provide informed, practical advice.
How can I keep my costs to a minimum?
We’ll always provide an estimated fee where applicable, and we’ll stick to it as best we can. However, the best thing you can do is trust us to get on with the job, rather than continually chase for progress – we’ll be in touch as soon as anything changes.

We litigate on insolvency-related matters such as wrongful trading, misfeasance, preference and TUV claims, and, as well as acting for Insolvency Practitioners,we can also defend against claims by them to protect former directors and connected companies. If you’re a lender, we’ll review your security and provide full and ongoing advice on your enforcement procedures.
For company directors, we’ll provide advice about your duties in a turnaround situation and we can also help you sell your business or assets if it comes to it. We also act in relation to the appointment of administrators, liquidators and trustees in bankruptcy when needed.
