How we've helped
We acted for a liquidator of a leisure company with multiple sister companies which had engaged in a complex million pound asset-stripping fraud involving many transactions and parties. After supporting the extensive investigation, and before proceedings, we robustly engaged with the defendants and were able to quickly achieve an excellent out of court settlement, bringing substantial monies back into the estate and enabling a dividend to creditors.
