Solicitors For Your Business

Insolvency & Business Recovery Solicitors

Specialist solicitors in our established Insolvency & Business Recovery team, based in Reading and the Thames Valley, can advise in relation to insolvency, both corporate and individual, and business turnaround situations.

A business may find itself facing insolvency due to debts, trading liabilities, a looming tax or VAT bill or as a result of a winding up petition.

We recognise the demands that insolvency can place on a business and its owners, as well as the other parties involved, so will work closely with you to explore options including refinancing or restructuring and the sale of your business or its assets. If a turnaround or sale is not possible, we can advise on personal and corporate insolvency matters. We also advise insolvency practitioners and lenders on the effective discharge of their duties and on any resulting disputes or issues.

We are also experienced in advising individuals who find themselves in distressed financial circumstances or subject to formal insolvency processes.

In addition to advising companies and individuals in financial distress, a large part of our time is taken up with advising solvent companies, landlords, individuals and others on insolvency processes, options and likely outcomes when a counterparty with which they have contracted is facing insolvency or has entered a formal insolvency process.

Our team is recommended in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500. Our clients include businesses of all shapes and sizes, and their owners, licensed insolvency practitioners, debtors, lenders and funders.

We provide a comprehensive range of legal services to businesses and their owners or management teams, allowing you to manage both your private and commercial needs more efficiently and effectively using a single law firm.

As members of the international Law Firm Network , we can also advise overseas clients on doing business in the UK.
