Members of 3PB’s commercial group advise on all aspects of insolvency, whether that be applications being made within insolvency proceedings or other matters such as applications for administration order, to set aside statutory demands, to restrain winding up petitions or to restrain advertisement of petitions. They also cover the full range of transaction avoidance work (e.g. transactions defrauding creditors, preferences, transactions at undervalue).
We act on behalf of office-holders, debtors, creditors, companies, directors and insolvency practitioners (IPs) providing focused advocacy and advice on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious Insolvency Law and procedure.
Our team regularly appears in the High Court (the Companies Court and the Bankruptcy Division) and in County Courts across the country. One of our team, Cheryl Jones, was appointed a Deputy Bankruptcy Registrar in 2008 and sits in the Bankruptcy Division and Companies Court in the High Court.
3PB is recognised by clients and the leading legal directories for its depth of specialisation and the quality of its legal advice whilst prized for its commercial approach to complex problems. Members regularly deliver talks and workshops for industry groups, solicitors, accountancy firms and other insolvency practitioners across the UK.
