Advice for directors

Getting expert legal advice at the earliest opportunity is absolutely essential. This can help to avoid the risk of further action being taken against you and minimise the consequences if mistakes have been made.

Often even insolvent businesses can be rescued with the benefit of timely advice, and we can work with insolvency practitioners to talk you through the various restructuring options that may be available.

Even after insolvency, you may need to get advice on the consequences for you or your family members personally, or in relation to your dealing with liquidators or administrators.

Support for directors and their family members

Corporate insolvency can have serious consequences for directors and their loved ones. We can advise on issues such as insolvency practitioners seeking to recover funds that have been taken out of the business by directors, including where these have been used to provide for family members and other third parties.

Claims against directors

Directors of insolvent companies can face personal claims, disqualification and even criminal action, while family members can also have their assets targeted.

Our corporate insolvency solicitors can advise directors and their family members on claims related to matters such as:

  • Director disqualification
  • Unfit conduct
  • Undervalued transfers
  • Trading whilst insolvent
  • Wrongful trading
  • Fraudulent trading
