Director Disqualification Proceedings


A report on the conduct of the directors to the Insolvency Service.

As part of the process of any insolvency involving a company, the insolvency practitioner has to submit a report on the conduct of the directors to the Insolvency Service.

In the event that the Insolvency Service views their conduct as making them unfit to be involved in a limited company, then the Insolvency Service will seek a disqualification undertaking from that director, or a compulsory court order if no such undertaking is given. The disqualification can be from 2 to 15 years.

Our insolvency team are happy to advise anyone who has such proceedings brought against them, and has been successful in a number of cases in resisting the disqualification altogether or alternatively, significantly reducing the term of the disqualification.
