Director disqualification

If you are a director of a company that goes into administration or liquidation, the appointed Administrator or Liquidator will conduct a review of decisions taken by directors. They are obliged to file a ‘D’ report on the conduct of the directors.

As a result of the ‘D’ report the Insolvency Service can carry out an investigation and issue proceedings to prevent you from acting as a director of a limited company.

This can be for anything from 2 to 15 years and can seriously impact your business life.

We have experts in directors’ disqualification and we provide effective advice in a straightforward and sensitive way.

It is essential to seek early legal advice to prevent potentially serious consequences.

Directors’ disqualification seek advice early

These types of disputes are often factually complex. However you remain the person most likely to be able to provide the information to resolve it. The crucial part is that advice is sought early so that all available options can be explored and considered.

We can advise on:

  • a claim under the Company Directors Disqualification Act
  • the benefits of either contesting the claim or entering into an Undertaking to not act as a director for an agreed period (usually lower than the period being claimed)
  •  an application to act as a director of a specific named company even after you have provided an undertaking or have been disqualified by the court from acting as a director.
