A person’s or a business’s reputation often takes years to build and yet it can be destroyed in a minute due to the speed and permanence of online publications and social media alongside traditional media outlets. Defamatory publications can not only be costly, in terms of loss of revenue or opportunity, but can also impact on individuals personally: damaging relationships or preventing them from developing in the first place. They are also often the source of considerable distress and embarrassment. It is often necessary to act quickly before a damaging publication spread.


Our dispute resolution solicitors have many years of experience in resolving disputes for businesses and can advise you on the appropriate and cost-effective method for dealing with your conflict.

Bankruptcy and Winding up Proceedings

Bankruptcy refers to a process where a debtor will be declared a bankrupt pursuant to a court order on the creditor’s petition or the debtor’s petition. All the unsecured property belonging to the bankrupt will be vested on the Director General of Insolvency (DGI) and the DGI has the responsibility to realize all such assets. The proceeds of the sale will be distributed among creditors who have filed their proof of debts and the debts have been admitted by the DGI.
