We are specialists who can advise office holders, creditors, companies and directors on all aspects of corporate restructuring and insolvency issues. We have an in-depth understanding of this niche area of law enabling us to provide commercially astute advice to achieve the best possible result at proportionate cost.

We recognise that there may not be sufficient funds in the insolvent estate for the office holder to fund litigation. We are prepared to consider taking these cases on pursuant to a conditional fee agreement after undertaking a thorough assessment of the merits.
