“Payne Hicks Beach is a strong, dedicated team offering excellent levels of service” The Legal 500 UK 2017

We advise company officials dealing with decisions to be taken before, during or after insolvency. We advise creditors, major accountants and insolvency practitioners in their capacity as administrative receivers, administrators, supervisors and liquidators. We also deal with issues arising out of corporate and personal guarantees.

We are experienced in giving advice in relation to property insolvency to landlords and tenants including investors and developers. For example, insolvency can limit a landlord’s right to forfeit a lease by peaceable re-entry. We deliver pro-active advice rather than a re-active approach and we often design solutions for creditors to pre-empt or otherwise work with insolvency issues.

We deal with debt restructuring, agreements between parties and court applications dealing with the conduct of the insolvency or assets in dispute.
