At BLM, we take care of any issues arising out of insolvency, whether this is immediate or threatened. Our experience shows that the earlier you get advice, the better your outcomes tend to be.

Whether you are an insolvency practitioner, a business facing financial difficulty, an individual facing personal insolvency or a creditor faced with a debtor in financial trouble, our team is well placed to advise you on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious insolvency, including:


  • Liquidations
  • Administrations
  • Receiverships
  • Voluntary arrangements
  • Bankruptcy
  • Civil fraud


  • Restructuring
  • Asset and share sales
  • Pre-packs and appointments

We work closely with third party litigation funders and specialist counsel to ensure that the financing of claims is dealt with effectively and we regularly deal with issues such as:

  • Office holders’ claims for fraudulent trading, wrongful trading, misfeasance, preferences and transfers at an undervalue
  • Investigations
  • Director disqualifications
  • Creditor claims (including landlord and tenant claims)
  • Insurance disputes
  • Claims arising from professional negligence

If your business is in financial difficulty, or you have customers or suppliers in a similar situation, we will ensure that you have access to the relevant expertise at all times.
