Insolvency Legal Services
The issues and pressures arising for those connected with a company facing difficulty and a potential insolvency situation are numerous and complex. Directors who are faced with a failing business need to understand their duties and potential personal liability; companies that are facing insolvency need to understand the legal procedure they are faced with; and insolvency practitioners need to ensure that they act within the scope of their powers and duties to achieve their objectives.
