Insolvency & Restructuring

“St Philips Chambers continues to be a leading light in the Midlands for all matters insolvency. It is home to an impressive team of insolvency barristers, from the silks down to the junior level. It represents both regional and national clients and has a well-earned reputation for client satisfaction.” Legal 500 describes St Philips’ insolvency work as a “strength” as part of its “top class” commercial team.

We recognise that clients demand specialist knowledge from barristers who are good on their feet, commercially minded and approachable. St Philips, with its dedicated team, can provide that and back it with a professional clerking team that is client-focused and responsive.

Each member of our team has significant experience of insolvency work and expertise spans all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency law including:

  • Administration
  • Liquidation
  • CVAs
  • Receiverships
  • Misfeasance claims
  • Directors’ disqualification
  • Bankruptcy
  • IVAs
  • Cross-border issues

There are numerous reported cases involving members of the team. Members of the team contribute articles to specialist publications, including Corporate Rescue & Insolvency and Recovery Magazine (in which St Philips has regular case note sections) and Insolvency Intelligence. They also regularly provide seminars to solicitors and insolvency practitioners.

We recognise that funding can sometimes be an issue and in appropriate cases, members of the team are prepared to consider acting on a conditional fee basis. Whatever our decision, we will always try to provide a clear answer to funding issues as quickly as possible.
