Facing director disqualification


How we help

If you don’t meet your legal obligations as a company director, the Secretary of State (the Insolvency Service) can bring a case against you under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986.

If you lose your case, you could be disqualified for up to 15 years. If you break the terms of your disqualification, you could be fined or sent to prison for up to two years. In addition, you have unlimited liability for the losses of any company you have been involved with, and may also be criminally liable.

We specialise in defending director disqualification claims. Over the past 20 years, we have successfully persuaded the Insolvency Service to withdraw court proceedings against our clients across a range of industries, including construction, media, and public relations.

Even if you have only received an initial letter or phone call from the Insolvency Service, it’s important that you contact us straightaway.
