Unfreeze assets

Are you looking to unfreeze assets? Has your company’s frozen bank account caused you issues?  We can help you unfreeze company bank accounts and continue to trade. If you have a winding up order against you, we can help get that winding up order reversed.

We have a team of legal advisers who are experts at dealing with winding up petitions and the consequences that result from them.  One of those is often that your bank will find out about the winding up order and freeze the bank account. “Bank account frozen” problems can have dramatic consequences for the company and stop it being able to trade. It can also stop the company being able to pay suppliers and also staff. Unless the company bank account is unfrozen quickly, the company can cease trading and will end up in liquidation.

In order to help unfreeze a company bank account, an application to court for what is called a validation order is best. A validation order is a specialist type of court order which seeks the court’s permission for certain payments from the company bank account to be made to allow the company to continue trading. It is possible to continue trading with a winding up order in place but it does require court permission for this to be done legally. Otherwise there is a great danger that directors of the company can end up with personal claims against them if the company is later wound up. It can also lead to those directors being subject to a director disqualification order.

I was very impressed with the service I received at Francis Wilks and Jones. It was extremely thorough, professional and speedy, and the fees were much more reasonable than the competition. We ended up going down a different path than initially anticipated, and they only charged me minimal fees. Highly recommended.

I was greatly impressed with the commercial, tactical and technical ability of the team at FWJ. They quickly got to grips with a complex set of facts. Through their hard work they had the proceedings against me dropped and a significant proportion of my legal fees repaid. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
