Partner & Deputy Head of Civil & Commercial Litigation
At MW Solicitors we have lawyers who specialise in helping businesses resolve their Insolvency issues.
We can assist Insolvency Practitioners to realise a debtor’s assets by repossession and sale of the bankrupt’s home or recovery of assets which have been dissipated by the bankrupt prior to, or following the bankruptcy order.
Sometimes these applications can involve sensitive exceptional circumstances and complex disputes relating to exoneration or division of the beneficial interest and our team has the right level of experience to assist.
Our Insolvency Team can advise insolvency practitioners on all types of transactions including:
- Income Payment Orders (IPO)
- General litigation which the bankrupt may have been involved in before the IPO
- Pension issues
- Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA)
The team can also assist a bankrupt (or other parties) when they are faced with any of the above issues. We can offer guidance and assistance as to the best form of settlement or whether the claim made is defendable.
Our Corporate Insolvency experts can assist insolvency practitioners in claims such as:
- Undervalue claims
- Disposition of property
- Directors disqualification proceedings
- Wrongful/fraudulent trading
- Misfeasance claims.
Often, matters involve a high level of investigation before a case can be commenced and we have the relevant experience to assist in those investigations. We strive to conclude matters quickly and efficiently where there is a commercially viable case.
We can advise and assist in placing a company into Administration for directors or creditors. We also advise on all aspects relating to:
- Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVA),
- Creditors Voluntary Liquidations
- Compulsory Liquidations

The team can also assist directors or other parties when faced with the above issues. We offer guidance and assistance to find the best form of settlement or determine whether the claim made by the Insolvency Practitioner is defendable.
We also offer services to creditors which enable them to monitor any bad debts.
As a creditor you may need advice to find the best way to approach a bad debt or a debtor who has financial issues. We can assist and advise on the best course of action. This may include:
- Issuing a statutory demand
- Bankruptcy petition
- Winding up petition
We can advise creditors when a debtor has become insolvent and is subject to or about to be subject to an insolvency process. We provide advice on how the debt can be recovered by ensuring that the insolvency practitioner is able to recover all the assets available to him.
Our team is able to assist in commercial disputes from collection of debts through to injunctions and have a wealth of experience in dealing with high value and complex claims.
We have particular expertise in contractual debt claims along with secondary security actions and are able to assist large corporates or indeed individuals facing such disputes. We have the commercial aptitude to ensure any dispute is dealt with cost effectively always maintaining clear transparency on costs and this is achieved through the recognition of keeping the client aware of every step and the associated costs.
We have experience in mediations and alternative dispute resolution schemes to ensure the right result is met for the client at all times.
