Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is a legal status offering protection from further action by creditors whose debts are 'provable in bankruptcy’. A person can become bankrupt by filing a debtors petition.

 

Alternatively, bankruptcy can be used by creditors as an extreme debt enforcement option. Either way, bankruptcy is a very serious matter and proper legal advice should be obtained before filing this petition.

03.

Insolvency

Insolvency is term used in relation to company liquidations and bankruptcy. Williams Hunt Bett can advise secured and unsecured creditors, companies or individuals as to their legal rights and entitlements in regards to insolvent traders.

 

At the other end of the spectrum clients may need protection from over zealous creditors who are either pursuing the wrong company entity or may be seeking to claim on a debt that has been incorrectly charged.
