Insolvency law for individuals

Our insolvency lawyers can assist with negotiations with creditors to reach a repayment plan on an informal basis or via an individual voluntary arrangement. We have considerable expertise in advising individuals on bankruptcy and the implications for the debtor themselves and any none bankrupt spouse. In addition we can assist with personal guarantees and the implications of none payment. Interim and final charging orders can also form part of enforcement action by creditors and again our solicitors can advise on the implications of such actions and challenge where appropriate, keeping your best interests in mind at all times.
