Contentious Insolvency

Cooke, Young & Keidan undertakes a range of contentious insolvency work, including administrations, compulsory and voluntary liquidations, receiverships (traditional and other), transaction avoidance disputes, actions for and against liquidators and other office holders.

We also have experience acting for distressed hedge funds and the investors, directors and investment managers of such funds. Our team provides clear, targeted and practical advice at a realistic cost.

As a specialist litigation firm, free of conflicts of interest, we can act against all of the major financial institutions as well as many other institutions against which other firms are conflicted from acting, including major law firms, accounting firms and insolvency practitioners.

Our lawyers also have significant expertise and experience in advising on issues arising from cross-border insolvencies, in particular insolvencies in off-shore jurisdictions, such as Jersey, Guernsey, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Our broad disputes resolution practice, including multi-jurisdictional asset recovery, misfeasance, fraud, and professional negligence disputes, gives us additional rounded expertise enabling us to deal with most contingencies that might arise in an insolvency context.
