We have extensive experience of defending directors’ disqualification proceedings brought by the Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills. Eleanor Richards previously acted for the Secretary of State in taking these proceedings and is therefore ideally placed to advise directors. In particular:

1.Representing former directors subject to these court proceedings, including dealing with undertakings and advising on periods of disqualification and negotiations with the Secretary of State.

2.Conducting the defence of such actions up to trial. 

Please feel free to contact Eleanor Richards to discuss your particular matter further.
