HomeCase studiesRecovering an official receiver deposit for a client pursuing an insolvent debtor

Why the client needed our help

Our client, a well-known invoice finance company, wanted helping pressuring a debtor to pay a £23,701 debt.

How we helped

The debtor refused to respond to a letter before action and so the decision was taken to issue and serve a winding up petition on them.

The outcome

The petition was served but it soon became clear that the debtor was in financial difficulty and, in fact, already insolvent. The petition was withdrawn and the official receiver deposit recovered for our client. A liquidator was appointed to investigate the company.
