Insolvency Claims & Proceedings
Acting for insolvency office holders (Liquidators, Administrators and Trustees in Bankruptcy amongst others), as well as creditors and others whose interests may be affected by insolvency or financial difficulty (whether of a business or an individual), our specialist lawyers guide clients through this technical area of law and practice. We have a proven record of success in recovering value for creditors through the available insolvency procedures. Whether that means recovering assets or claiming against a director for wrongful trading or pursuing other remedies, we are well placed to assist.
Where those responsible for the management of an organisation experiencing financial difficulty need help, our insolvency lawyers are able to provide ‘good governance’ advice to assist clients in managing the risks they are facing and can also handle claims which may arise.
Our ability to advise on the law relating to key assets (such as Intellectual Property) and on regulated areas (such as Pensions) affected by an insolvency is well recognised. We also handle cross-border cases (with the assistance of fellow members of LawExchange International). Protecting our clients’ interests is our priority.

“extremely helpful and accessible at every level”
Chambers & Partners 2018
"The young lady [Tiffany Benson] from Northampton who came down to see me was absolutely great. I went into the appointment with great fears and came out feeling as though a load of weight had been taken from my shoulders and my fears seemed less. Many thanks to her."
"Tiffany Benson was entirely professional and efficient in her handling of a difficult situation I found myself in trying to deal with another firm of Solicitors. Her approach was direct and supportive and she always kept me up to date with each step. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tiffany."
"We found Hewitsons helpful and informative in our initial discussions, with costs and benefits of various approaches made clear. Once engaged, they were proactive and kept us well informed of progress. Although our particular claim was reasonably complex, it was pursued rigorously, and with a very satisfactory outcome".
