Litigation for Insolvency Practitioners

Our Insolvency & Corporate Recovery team is consistently recognised as one of the premier insolvency and corporate recovery teams in the East Midlands, by both The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners legal directories.

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 companies in administration or liquidation. Our aim throughout is to get the best possible return for the creditors.

Our insolvency & corporate recovery department 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:

  • Transactional avoidance
  • Transactions at an undervalue
  • Preferences
  • Wrongful trading
  • Misfeasance
  • Overdrawn director’s loan accounts
  • Recovery of assets and property
  • Tracing and constructive trust claims.
