Insolvency and Restructuring

At Setfords Solicitors we have a team of lawyers who specialise in insolvency, corporate recovery and restructuring. Our multi-disciplinary team is able to assist with the full range of insolvency, corporate recovery and restructuring matters and to provide clients with swift, practical and commercial legal advice.

At Setfords, for clients affected by financial difficulties, we understand that insolvency issues may seem daunting and overly complex which can be really stressful.

This is particularly relevant in the current climate with so many legislative changes, both permanent and temporary, being introduced in this area, and with many businesses dealing with ongoing financial or operational challenges.

In many cases, a key factor to a successful outcome is for stakeholders to seek professional advice as early as possible, when a wider range of options are more likely to be available.

Our team also has substantial experience of acting for insolvency practitioners and creditors on insolvency and restructuring matters. We have a great deal of experience acting for clients in insolvency litigation, pursuing fraud claims and tracing and preserving assets for companies and creditors.
