I am a dispute resolution solicitor specialising in contentious insolvency matters. I regularly act for individuals, company director/shareholders and insolvency practitioners.

I often act for clients involved in High Court litigation in England and Wales, but am also experienced in disputes with an international element. I have recently represented clients in both the First Instance and Appellate Courts of the Qatar International Court.

My expertise includes:

  • Bringing and defending claims made pursuant to the Insolvency Act 1986 and/or Companies Act 2006.
  • Acting for director/shareholders of SMEs involved in boardroom disputes.
  • Acting for liquidators and administrators to assist with the recovery of funds into insolvent estates.
  • Advising clients on the benefits of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, in order to settle disputes commercially to avoid incurring the costs of trial.

My experience includes:

  • Acted on behalf of the defendants to a £20m claim made pursuant to s.423 Insolvency Act 1986 by a bank based in the UAE.
  • Successfully applied to annul a bankruptcy order in circumstances whereby the bankrupt had failed to respond to a statutory demand or bankruptcy petition.
  • Settled a dispute between three shareholders in a firm of surveyors at mediation, avoiding the need for a trial.
  • Successfully brought proceedings against a director and shadow director of a company in liquidation pursuant to s.212 Insolvency Act.

Dan Tominey at FWJ was able to navigate me through the legal arguments and process with his sound advice. Dan’s reassurance, calm approach and good humour was maintained throughout. I would recommend Dan and FWJ to anyone looking for valuable corporate advice.
