There are many grounds which give rise to disqualification as a director - the most of which by far relate to non payment of taxes to HMRC by the company. But there other grounds such as continuing a failed business model. Whatever the reason or allegations against you - our team has been successfully defending director disqualification claims since 2002. Let us help you.

In order to defend such a director disqualification allegation, a director must show that the successor business had a different business model to the old company

At FWJ, we successfully acted for an individual who established 3 successive bagel chain companies in 4 years, each of which failed owing over £1 million to HMRC. However, we successfully demonstrated that each company had a very different modus operandi with genuine prospects of success at the outset of each company. The Secretary of State later discontinued director disqualification proceedings and paid our client’s costs in full.
