Advice to Company Directors

Many of our assignments begin with a meeting with the board of directors concerned about their company’s financial position. The experience we have gained and which we bring to each new assignment is crucial to our clients who have had to deal with the difficult task of turning around the business of their company or group. We understand that directors involved in rescuing their company’s business can be involved 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in what is often an emotional and sometimes fraught process.  We pride ourselves on being able to provide professional support, often at short notice and at awkward times, as we go the extra mile to help our clients facing these difficulties. We also advise in relation to directors’ duties and avoiding the pitfalls of wrongful trading and associated personal liabilities. In conjunction with our dispute resolution specialists we can also provide assistance to directors facing proceedings under the Company Directors Disqualification Act or investigations by the Secretary of State. Clients will have the reassurance of working with lawyers who have helped others through these proceedings and have a wealth of experience in dealing with the Insolvency Service and their lawyers.
