Our insolvency expertise
Insolvency disputes are a growing area of litigation and naturally become even more prevalent when the economy is struggling. The Morgan Rose team are specialists in insolvency litigation and our clients include company directors and a broad range of insolvency practitioners, all of whom appreciate our clear-thinking, detailed approach to their legal work.
Legal advice for directors facing insolvency or administration
For a director facing insolvency or a company administration, it is usually a highly charged and emotional situation that needs clear thinking and supportive advice. We have substantial experience of helping directors to defend a broad spread of claims under the Insolvency Act, including allegations of transactions at an undervalue, preferences, transactions defrauding creditors, and wrongful or fraudulent trading.
Specialist support for insolvency practitioners
Insolvencies can often arise out of fraudulent trading or either wilful or accidental wrongdoing by the company directors. As the liquidator, insolvency practitioners have a statutory duty to identify the causes of failure and, if necessary, bring proceedings under the Insolvency Act. The Morgan Rose team works closely with insolvency practitioners to provide fast, detailed and effective support for their investigations and any subsequent legal actions.
Directors' disqualification proceedings
Insolvency can often be a trigger for directors to face proceedings that could ban them from being a director for up to 15 years. Morgan Rose offers specialist advice on director disqualification proceedings, helping individuals to mitigate the impact and negotiate a better outcome.
