Insolvency

Chambers is regarded as one of the leading sets for restructuring and insolvency work and has consistently been included in both Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 since the directories commenced publication. Members have also appeared in Chambers & Partners World’s Leading Lawyers for restructuring and insolvency.

Chambers undertakes work in all areas of restructuring and insolvency from large corporate insolvencies to personal bankruptcy cases.

Members of chambers have been involved in most of the large insolvencies since the advent of the Insolvency Act 1986, including Lehman, BCCI and BHS. This has involved advising on and acting in both non-contentious and contentious aspects of insolvency work from the inception of the insolvency to its end.

We have considerable experience in dealing with the cross-border insolvencies and many members have been involved in insolvencies in the Caribbean, the British Overseas Territories, the Crown Dependencies and those Asian countries which have borrowed heavily from English law, even where there is no connection with England and Wales.

Members are frequently involved in directors’ disqualification proceedings acting both for the Government and the individual directors.

Daniel Lightman QC is the co-author of three chapters of Lightman and Moss on The Law of Administrators and Receivers of Companies (Sweet & Maxwell, 6th Ed, 2017).
