Insolvency


Chambers has members at every level with expertise in all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency.  Their practices include winding up petitions, bankruptcies, administrations, administrative and other receiverships, individual and company voluntary arrangements, partnership insolvencies, and directors’ disqualifications. 

Members act for companies and their directors, creditors (secured and unsecured) individuals facing insolvency proceedings of all types, and for insolvency practitioners.

Many of the insolvency matters dealt with have international and cross-border aspects, and there is a close connection with the civil fraud area of practice in chambers. Members have been involved in the obtaining of evidence overseas and the restraining of the disposition of assets located worldwide.  Several members of chambers have been called to the bars of the Eastern Carribean (including BVI, Cayman and Anguilla) Hong Kong.
