Insolvency

Several members at 6 Pump Court have expertise in insolvency matters both personal and corporate.

Recent cases have involved challenges to rejections of proofs of debt, applications for reinstatement of previously wound up companies and proceedings regarding potential dissipation of assets.

Members act for both liquidators and creditors and experience in this area reaches beyond the ‘pure’ insolvency matters to cases which touch on issues of insolvency in the wider context. Examples include applications made for leave to proceed against insolvent companies in respect of regulatory infringements, liquidators having to address contaminated land issues, disclaimer of leasehold property and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations matters.

Of particular importance may be the obtaining of urgent remedies seeking prevention of the presentation or advertisement of unjustified winding up petitions or the setting aside of statutory demands in personal insolvency cases.
