We understand that swift and urgent action is often crucial in insolvency cases. Our team possesses the necessary resources and expertise in insolvency law to act promptly and efficiently to manage the situation on your behalf.


Intellectual Property Focus

We excel in advising external administrators on intellectual property claims that arise in insolvency cases. Intellectual property is often a forgotten asset of a business, and we work closely with practitioners to maximize the return to creditors.

Our team is well-versed in security interests under the Personal Property Securities Act 2009. We provide guidance on how it operates and help you protect yourself from being caught with an invalid security interest in an insolvency scenario.
