Why the client needed our help

Our client, a privately owned investment company which invests, partners and operates projects across the natural resources and infrastructure sectors across Africa, needed assistance rescinding a winding up order presented against its English-registered parent company.

How we helped

We corresponded with the Official Receiver and appointed liquidators in order to obtain a rescission of the winding up order.

The outcome

Several months after the winding up order had been issued, we were able to have it rescinded. This allowed the company, through our client and its subsidiary (which had a multi-million pound turnover), to exit the liquidation.

One of the most astute appointments I have ever made.
