Director Disqualification

As one of the largest Fraud Defence firms in the UK, our Fraud Lawyers are the best choice for advice and representation concerning Director Disqualification investigations. Our Fraud Lawyers are commercially aware and able to work with you in forming arguments to oppose the Secretary of States application to disqualify.

What we can do 

A company director who becomes aware of an investigation as to his suitability to run the company should engage our expert Fraud Solicitors as early as possible. We can obtain the Secretary of State’s bundle and respond to it by explaining the director’s side of the events and to make submissions to prevent the disqualification, minimise the length of disqualification or if legally appropriate, advise the director whether to make a Director Disqualification Undertaking. These matters are complicated and require expertise. Our Fraud Lawyers can guide you through the complexities to achieve the best result possible.

Whether the basis of the investigation is any number of offences under the Fraud Act 2006, Tax Evasion or even Money Laundering; our Fraud Solicitors are knowledgeable and experienced in these fields to advise you effectively. Exclusively defending Fraud Allegations, our Fraud Lawyers will interrogate the evidence, will take your detailed account of events, will challenge illegal evidence and contest the evidence being put forward.

Significant work is required to ensure that the company was able to pay its debts, proper accounting records were maintained, annual returns were filed on time, making plans for taxes to be paid and to ensure that company assets were never used for personal gain or benefit. Our Lawyers will be able to identify the issues and focus on those aspects of the case which are important to win.
