Members of Littleton have expertise across the full range of insolvency litigation.  Members regularly advise on matters relating to all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency, including administrations, receiverships, liquidations, bankruptcy, unfair prejudice claims, business transfers, wrongful trading, preferences and cross-border insolvency issues.

Given Littleton’s core specialisms, members are also regularly instructed to appear in insolvency-related cases whose issues stretch into other areas of law, such as:

  • Insolvencies which involve allegations of fraud and/or breaches of fiduciary duty;
  • Insolvencies where TUPE issues are relevant and other aspects concerning employees’ rights;
  • Injunctions to preserve the assets of insolvent companies;
  • The theft of insolvent companies’ tangible and intangible assets;
  • Claims against former employees by Liquidators and Administrators;

Littleton’s juniors are increasingly sought for their insolvency work, regularly appearing as sole counsel in the Insolvency and Companies List of the Chancery Division and in the County Courts on interlocutory insolvency-related hearings, bankruptcy petitions, winding up petitions, applications for restraint of advertisement and administration extension applications.
