We have been helping directors successfully defend disqualification proceedings since 2002. In that time we have helped 100s of directors deal with the claims and get on with their lives. We can help find the best solution for you too.

The Company Director Disqualification Act 1986 covers the various different areas such as the following:

The above are the main aspects of the Company Director Disqualification Act 1986 which apply to this area of the law.


At Francis Wilks & Jones we are expert director disqualification solicitors aware of all aspects of the Company Director Disqualification Act 1986. Our knowledge of the director disqualification proceedings enables us to give expert legal advice to our clients, whatever the situation.

FWJ exceeded my expectations by not only avoiding an order for my disqualification as a director but also negotiating a complete withdrawal of the prosecution. This has been such a relief and weight off my mind after many years and I am very grateful to them. I strongly recommend instructing them at the very earliest opportunity. Timely advice, realistic expectations, prioritisation and logical legal presentation were key.
