Insolvency Law


The Insolvency Law Committee looks at the challenges facing UK businesses, particularly in the aftermath of major financial events such as the 2008 crash and the COVID-10 pandemic. The committee has good working relationships with stakeholders such as the Insolvency Service, and has worked with Government Departments in framing their legislation and guidance on issues affecting companies struggling through difficult times.
