Insolvency & Restructuring
Our experts work with professional advisers and clients to secure the best outcome in the insolvency process.
Debt & Asset Recovery
We act for clients and insolvency practitioners in relation to the recovery of assets and debts to form part of an insolvent estate. We have acted in complex asset recoveries, notably in relation to the recovery of interests in over twenty residential properties in Liverpool and other general book debts for the benefit of creditors. We can offer a full scale service on flexible funding arrangements and our litigation team has the experience to obtain interim injunctions if assets are at risk of dissipation before enforcement can take place.
We are regularly instructed by insolvency practitioners to recover possession of properties for the benefit of a bankruptcy or liquidation estate. We have the experience to deal with difficult owners, to ensure that orders are obtained swiftly and the property taken back for the benefit of the insolvent estate. We deal with these claims quickly and cost effectively.
Asset Sale Agreements
We can act on the sale and purchase of an insolvent business or its assets. We work closely with BTMK’s corporate team and we can dedicate as much resource as is necessary to urgent and time-sensitive matters working with business directly or with insolvency practitioners.

Bringing or Defending Claims Against Directors
We regularly bring and defend claims for preferences, director or officers’ fraud, transactions at an undervalue, unlawful dividends, misfeasance and wrongful trading. We work with specialist barristers in this field and we’ve got experience in acting in a whole range of insolvency situations including a recent Special Administration which was one of the first of its kind in the country.
Retention of Title
When a retention of title clause needs to be interpreted, you need high quality advice and you need it quickly. The consequences of getting it wrong can be disastrous and could lead to you facing injunction proceedings. We provide support for insolvency practitioners faced with an alleged R.O.T clause and we can guide you through the minefield of case authority quickly and cost effectively.
Corporate & Insolvency Advice
We provide advisory support on an office-holders’ role and in relation technical points concerning a liquidation, administration or a bankruptcy or potential bankruptcy. We are regularly brought in to advise before the process becomes final and to help a potential office-holder ascertain the best route for all concerned.
