Misfeasance Claims Case Studies

This article looks at two of our recent misfeasance claims cases, showing how we advised our client and significantly reduced the claims against them

We are representing the director of a company that entered into voluntary liquidation at the end of December 2012.

This case study, in what is an on-going case, shows our approach to defending Misfeasance Claims against directors, and details what we consider to be the likely outcome.
