    How we can help with Corporate Insolvency

    It is often important to determine whether a company is insolvent or not for many reasons. For example, insolvency is a prerequisite for the initiation of formal insolvency proceedings.

    If a company is insolvent when it enters into a certain transaction and formal insolvency proceedings are commenced within a specified time, that transaction may be open to challenge, and may cause further issue for the company.

    In addition, whether a company is solvent or not will determine whether a voluntary liquidation is controlled by its creditors or members. Directors also owe certain duties once a company is insolvent.

    The process is a complex one, and as such you will need a Corporate Insolvency solicitor to help you through it. That’s exactly what Arlingsworth can provide.
