Misfeasance Claims Case Studies

We are specialists in defending directors against misfeasance claims, which are often made by liquidators alleging that the specific conduct of a director constitutes misfeasance and therefore a breach of the statutory duties owed by the director to the company and its creditors, under section 212 of the Insolvency Act 1986. This article looks at two of our recent misfeasance claims cases, showing how we advised our client and significantly reduced the claims against them
