In the litigation department we assist clients involved in legal disputes and court cases. My main tasks are advising clients in an array of scenarios such as on proceedings that they may be considering against another party on the breakdown of a business relationship or in the defence of proceedings they did not expect to be dragged into. In the litigation department there are a number of teams with specialities such as commercial, intellectual property, landlord and tenant, debt-recovery, medical negligence, regulatory and insolvency.
I work on the insolvency team. We also work with insolvency practitioners and advise them in their roles as receivers, liquidators and examiners of companies. We also advise directors or creditors of companies who are considering an insolvency process such as liquidation or receivership for such companies and need information on how the process works and how it might impact them as directors or creditors.
