Personal Insolvency

We can advise you on all matters arising from personal insolvency and provide you and your family with specialist support. It is also reassuring to know that our personal insolvency team is nationally recognised for its strength and experience.

Personal insolvency often brings misery and misfortune to the debtor's family and has been described as "the melancholy consequence of debt and improvidence". Often, the only asset available to creditors is the family home, which can lead to even greater conflict between creditors and the bankrupt person's family.

How we can help

We provide pragmatic and realistic advice on the consequences of personal insolvency, including the repercussions of bankruptcy. This includes providing you with practical alternatives such as reaching settlement with creditors informally or creating an individual voluntary arrangement.
