We assist distressed businesses at the pre-insolvency stage by advising on their insolvency, restructuring and reorganisations options, advising directors on their obligations and duties in order to reduce the risk of them incurring personal liabilities, debt recovery and negotiating with creditors. We also advise other affected parties on the nature and effect of insolvency.
We draw on the experience of our corporate and commercial, commercial property and employment teams to provide complete and seamless advice to insolvency practitioners and other stakeholders, including in the following areas:
We have extensive experience of dispute resolution in relation to insolvent and distressed companies.
This includes debt recovery and general dispute resolution, such as contract and negligence actions, but also the following specialist areas:
As part of the Alliott Group, an international network of law and accountancy firms, we are able to deal with asset recovery and other insolvency issues outside the UK.
We appreciate that funding can often be an obstacle to pursuing claims in insolvency situations and in appropriate cases we will therefore consider whether services can be undertaken on a contingent basis with no upfront cost to you. In all cases, we will offer detailed costs advice at the outset and can in many cases act on a fixed fee-basis.
Whatever the issues to be dealt with, we offer clear, practical advice and from an early stage set out a road map to make it possible for clients to achieve their objectives in the most effective and efficient way possible.
