The Liquidator’s Claims | Kangs Liquidator Investigation Solicitors

Our client faced claims for allegedly:

1) Authorising and allowing Connected Party Payments contrary to Sections 172, 173 and 174 of the Companies Act 2006.

It was alleged that our client authorised substantial illegal payments by way of preferential payments to parties connected to the company which were detrimental to the claims of other creditors. For further information on preferential payments, please visit:

2) Wrongful Trading contrary to Section 214 Insolvency Act 1986.

It was alleged that our client continued to trade after it ought to have been clear that there was no reasonable prospect of creditors being paid given that the company was insolvent. For further information on wrongful trading, please visit:

Satisfactory Resolution of The Claim | Kangs Insolvency Solicitors

On behalf of our client, the team at Kangs Solicitors:

  • attended our client and obtained his detailed instructions,
  • examined in detail all of the material provided by our client and the liquidator,  
  • advised our client upon his position, and the appropriate manner in which to proceed in order to secure the most favourable outcome available to him,   
  • following detailed negotiations, reached an agreement for settlement which was favourable to our client as it involved payment of an amount substantially less than that claimed and provided our client with an acceptable period for payment to be made.

Needless to say, our client was very happy with the result achieved for him by the Kang’s team.
