Financial Disputes | Client Case Studies

Our client was a small business owner. She lent money to a struggling family member to help save their company. She then became a director of that company to try to rescue it from financial ruin. A receiver was appointed to the company and they sued our client for alleged insolvent trading. Our client’s assets, including her family home, were at risk. Our client was at a severe disadvantage from the point of view of relative wealth and resources. With our intervention, a settlement was reached and our client was able to keep her home.

Our client had lent money to a developer. There were promises of repayment, but none was ever made. We managed to secure the debt by way of a caveat over the development property. After lengthy negotiations, an agreement was made and our client received their entire loan amount plus interest and costs.
