We have experience in dealing with all types of Contentious and Non-Contentious Corporate, Personal and Cross Border insolvency issues.
As well as acting for Insolvency Practitioners, we act for others affected by insolvency, such as lenders, professional advisors, trade creditors, businesses and individuals.
We are supported by our colleagues who are specialists in Banking, Property, Employment, Corporate and IP and who have knowledge and experience of insolvency issues.
In addition, we have established a niche expertise for cross border work and through our membership of INSOL and ADVOC, a global legal network with over 90 law firms worldwide. This enables us to advise clients located overseas to open insolvency proceedings in England and Wales, as well as clients based in the UK to trace and recover offshore assets.

Sberbank of Russia v Ramljak  EHC 348 (Ch)
The High Court held that "final determination" signifies the very last stage of any proceedings, without the chance to appeal. Sberbank were therefore still bound by their undertaking to take no further steps in an arbitration against the Company.
