Insolvency and Restructuring

Insolvency can be a complex area, and it's important to have an experienced team on your side. Our insolvency lawyers are highly regarded for the depth of their technical knowledge and expertise, and the clear and pragmatic advice they provide.
We have a proven track record in advising insolvency practitioners, directors of distressed companies and stakeholders across the UK.


Our insolvency lawyers have worked on many complex contentious matters representing office holders with claims for misfeasance, breach of statutory duties, antecedent transactions as well as disputes arising out of bankruptcy matters.

In the last year alone we have dealt with a comprehensive range of transactions, working with:

  • Insolvency practitioners
  • Invoice and Asset Finance companies
  • Lenders, debtors and creditors
  • Directors and shareholders of businesses faced with insolvency issues

Our market-leading expertise in asset and invoice finance also means we are able to work with office holders to restructure failing businesses.

What do our clients say?

Our contentious insolvency lawyers are described as "determined and resolute" by Chambers Legal Directory.

"Will Angas and his team have acted for me on several occasions when we have successfully recovered payments from directors or third parties which related to unlawful actions permitted by the directors prior to my appointment. Will's energy and commitment to these cases was exceptional and has resulted in significant recoveries to the benefit of the insolvent companies' creditors. In many of these cases, Will's sharp, commercial approach and strong, technical ability has resulted in settlement without the need to commence formal legal proceedings therefore reducing the risk and potential expense to the insolvent estate. I look forward to working with Will and his team on future matters"
