We have gained a national reputation for our work with Licensed Insolvency Practitioners, led by solicitor and Licensed Insolvency Practitioner, Annabel Whittaker
We act for Insolvency Practitioners in making claims to recover assets on behalf of trustees in bankruptcy in administration or liquidation. Our aim throughout is to get the best possible return for the creditors.
Our insolvency team has extensive experience of dealing with disputes in the insolvency context having recently been described in Chambers & Partners as “the best contentious team in the East Midlands”.
Typical insolvency litigation cases dealt with by the team include:
- Transactions at an undervalue
- Recovery of assets and property
- Tracing and constructive trust claims.
