Geldards’ Insolvency team has wide experience of defending Company Director Disqualification Act prosecutions. CDDA work sits alongside the full spectrum of domestic and international insolvency advice (both non-contentious and contentious, claimant or defendant) Geldards has provided over many years.
Following the disastrous outcome (for BIS) in the Farepak disqualification proceedings in 2012 it is now easier to agree lower disqualification undertakings or even get prosecutions abandoned. Only the first case above post-dates Farepak.
Being disqualified from acting as a director can have serious business and personal consequences for you or your family. By seeking specialist advice as early as possible, you will maximise your options and may eliminate the prospect of disqualification, or result in a lower period of disqualification.
Director disqualification is a detailed and complex area of law. For further information or advice please get in touch.
