Insolvency Practitioners

At Morgan Phelps, we are dedicated to providing full-service insolvency advice and assistance to our insolvency practitioner clients in their office-holder capacities, whether that be in relation to contentious or non-contentious instructions.

We have vast experience in all areas of contentious insolvency, such as:

  • prosecuting antecedent transactions, both corporate and personal (e.g. misfeasance, transactions at an undervalue, preferences, wrongful trading, unlawful director loans, illegal dividends, etc.);
  • asset realisation (e.g. possession and sale; IPO / IPA, delivery up, book debt recovery, etc.); and
  • assisting office-holders generally with their investigations (e.g. sections 234 – 236 and 336 of the Insolvency Act 1986).

Similarly, we are well-versed in assisting in non-contentious / transactional matters, to include:

  • administration appointments and applications (and advising on the validity of these);
  • ancillary court applications (including administration extensions);
  • sale and purchases of businesses and assets;
  • security validity advice; and
  • ROT advice.

We appreciate the challenges office-holders can face in funding litigation where there are limited resources in an insolvent estate and are therefore prepared to consider speculative or otherwise contingent retainers on a case by case basis where appropriate.  

We also work closely with litigation funders to provide further and alternative funding options to office-holders.
