Recovery & Insolvency

Our recovery and insolvency team works for all the major Insolvency Practitioners directly. We advise organisations with solvency issues and those trading with insolvent companies, as well as their directors and officers.

We are recognised as leaders in the provision of external funding for insolvency practitioners and cash-strapped companies, enabling them to prosecute their claims.

The team has launched a £50million litigation fund.  This is unique in the market and allows our Litigation team to fund a case which they believe has merit without any cost to the client should the claim prove unsuccessful. By bringing this decision-making process in-house our team gives insolvency practitioners a much faster way of funding claims than is currently available and provides them with a low risk way to bring claims on behalf of insolvent companies. For more information on our Litigation fund, see here.

We cover a wide variety of areas, including:

  • liquidity issues
  • contentious work
  • advisory work
  • transactional work
  • international advice
  • debt recovery through our dedicated Capital Collect service
  • advising on directors’ duties
  • disqualification proceedings
  • retention of title claims
  • corporate turn-arounds and CVAs.

Outside of cases, we are often involved in advisory work, encompassing a wide range of areas like wrongful trading, personal guarantees, and reviews of security documents.
