Entering into Administration

Our dedicated insolvency solicitors can assist with companies needing advice on insolvency or facing administration. Administration applies to an insolvent company and allows the company to reorganise itself or realise its assets through the protection of a statutory moratorium which prevents the company’s creditors from taking any enforcement action. 

A company can enter into administration by way of a court order via an application to the court by the company, its directors, creditors or special officials. In certain circumstances, the company, a holder of a qualifying floating charge or the directors can enter into administration using the out of court route. We can help advise the best route to ensure the best possible return for those owed money. 

The aim of administration must be to achieve one of the following:-

  • Rescuing the company as a going concern;
  • Achieving a better result for the company’s creditors then would otherwise be achieved via  a liquidation;
  • Realisation of the company’s property to make a distribution to one or more secured or preferential creditors.
