Directors Disqualification

If you are the subject of an investigation by the Insolvency Service (acting for and on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy), we can assist whether the investigation is at the preliminary stages, whether a formal notice pursuant to section 16 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 (CDDA 1986) has been issued or whether disqualification proceedings have been issued at Court.

Depending on the facts of the case and the lines of defence available to you, we at Band Hatton Button can advise you to either defend the proceedings or negotiate a disqualification undertaking. In the latter case, we can also assist you with obtaining permission to continue to be a director of any current companies you are involved in notwithstanding any disqualification.
