Contentious Insolvency Investigation and Advisory

Difficult economic times can put intense pressure on organisations. This can lead to financial distress wherein the entity itself is no longer capable of paying its bills and other financial obligations with its lenders. This situation is referred to as insolvency.

A number of factors can lead to insolvency, including poor cash management, rising vendor costs, lawsuits from customers or business associates, and the inability of the business’s offerings to evolve with the customers’ changing needs. It can also stem from contentious issues like wrongful trading, misfeasance, fraudulent trading, undervalue transactions, preferential payments, and unlawful dividends. Whatever the cause, however, one thing is certain: insolvency must be acted upon immediately to preserve the value of the company and ensure fair treatment of creditors.
