A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law


In today’s unstable economy, insolvency issues arise frequently. The range of different forms of insolvency, options and consequences present a minefield for anyone unfamiliar with this complex area.  Our insolvency barristers are able to analyse and explain legal issues in a sensible, commercial and accessible manner.

They are experts in the full range of court-based corporate and personal insolvency options.  Sometimes insolvency can also be avoided, and our barristers are also able to help achieve this through individual, partnership or corporate voluntary arrangements, moratoria, administration, receivership, and restructuring.

The Hardwicke Insolvency Team are particularly well-versed in the intricacies of the new Insolvency Rules – the Insolvency (England & Wales) Rules 2016 having revised the new edition of Atkin’s Court Forms, Vol 9(1)-(3), covering corporate insolvency, so as to bring it into line with the new Insolvency Rules.

Our barristers act in both domestic and international insolvencies and we are happy to work with lawyers in other jurisdictions.

Our insolvency specialists are also experienced in the many forms of ADR, and include a number of qualified mediators.
