Why the client needed our help

Our client, the former director of property development company that had gone into liquidation, needed assistance following a liquidator’s claim for the repayment of a director’s loan and allegations of misfeasance and breach of fiduciary duties.

How we helped

We responded to the claims in robust terms and went on to formulate and execute a strategy culminating in a full-day mediation at which we were able to persuade the liquidator to withdraw all its claims on commercial terms that were favourable to our client.

The outcome

Following our intervention, our client was able to avoid protracted and expensive litigation and was able to revert his attention to running a successful new business.

FWJ were very hands-on, getting involved from an early stage in seeking to avert an expensive set of litigation proceedings. I am more than happy to recommend their services, particularly when it comes to considering complicated issues or complex proceedings.
