Our partner-led team of insolvency solicitors has considerable experience in this field.

We act for a variety of clients nationally and internationally including licensed insolvency practitioners, banks, asset based lenders, businesses and individuals.

Our insolvency team is multi-disciplinary and vastly experienced in advising banks, businesses and insolvency practitioners in all aspects of insolvency.


Our team provides comprehensive advice on a wide range of insolvency issues including:

  • administrations
  • receiverships
  • liquidations
  • bankruptcy
  • company voluntary arrangements
  • individual voluntary arrangements
  • annulment applications
  • provision of technical and compliance support to insolvency practitioners
  • prohibited name applications
  • validation order applications
  • retention of title claims
  • asset sale and purchase
  • cross-border recovery
  • director’s disqualification
  • wrongful and fraudulent trading claims
  • misfeasance claims
  • voidable transactions
  • corporate restructuring and refinancing

Members of our team have been continuously involved in the specialised field of insolvency over many years advising both banks and insolvency practitioners. This means that we can provide the added value of considerable experience gained during the last major recession of the late 1980s/early 1990s in respect of major insolvencies.


We have been providing legal advice and assistance to insolvency practitioners and financial institutions for over 25 years.  We also have the capability to rapidly assemble multi-disciplinary teams as required on a case-by-case basis.  This enables us to act both quickly and effectively in cases of all levels of complexity and scale and which comprise legal issues beyond insolvency.

Clients expect technical excellence in what can often be a very precise and exacting area of law. At Hugh James, we deliver that excellence and combine it with commercial experience to ensure that the very highest quality and value for money is consistently being delivered, whatever the nature of the transaction.
