Our insolvency group is a team of lawyers with expertise in corporate law, dispute resolution, employment, intellectual property and property law, working together to provide the best possible service to clients dealing with insolvency.

With considerable experience and strong reputations for dealing with a wide variety of insolvency issues, we can advise on any aspect of insolvency.

We can assist you through the entire process — advising on appropriate insolvency procedures, whether these are to be conducted outside of or through the court, as well as dealing with asset sales and related employment, intellectual property and property issues.

Our expertise in dispute resolution means that we can also advise on all aspects of contentious insolvency, whether corporate or personal, including claims by and against insolvency practitioners and in respect of bankruptcy and winding-up proceedings.

We are experienced in advising on the UK aspects of foreign insolvency proceedings.

We also have a particular expertise in dealing with regulatory and other relevant authorities and bodies, where insolvency may result in the loss of permission to trade or loss of a licence or result in an intervention.
