Insolvency Barristers London – Litigation

Many insolvency barristers in London and solicitors firms have a tendency to be unduly aggressive. Many solicitors all too often and far too quickly choose an aggressive approach over one that is designed to achieve a settlement at minimal cost to the insolvency in question. Considered by clients to be one of the best insolvency barristers in London probably because Tahir often advises that it is generally better to avoid insolvency litigation. Not least because litigation can be lengthy. Cases particularly those concerning land, can drag on in the courts for years before judgment and conclusion. Even then it can take longer for enforcement of the judgment which leads to additional costs.

Often to it is far better to try to maximise recovery through some form of realistic and meaningful negotiations.

This is especially important where there are leases giving rights to landlords to forfeit. Generally where a company goes into administration often landlords are not able to forfeit a lease, except for in certain circumstances. Where a landlord does choose to exercise a right of forfeiture in the event of an administration the court will take all circumstances into consideration.
