  • "Although a significant volume of this firm's recent work has consisted of personal insolvency matters, the team's experience also extends to corporate administrations and pre-pack sales of distressed businesses and their assets. A mixture of large and mid-tier IPs instructs the practice on the back of its 'responsiveness' and 'sound technical skills'. The group has a number of noted niche strengths, including advising banks on their right to levy charges on insolvent individuals proposing to enter into voluntary arrangements. It also continues to assist a well-known client on the implementation of Law of Property Act receiverships, which in the past year has generated cases involving sums totalling several million pounds."
