Bankruptcy and personal insolvency

Contact details

Southampton +44 (0)2381 511 511


Registered barristers at Tennyson have many years of experience in acting for, and advising, all types of stakeholders in the bankruptcy process from appearing in court to set aside statutory demands to appearing on bankruptcy petitions (whether for creditor or debtor) and advising on the bankruptcy process. Bankruptcy and personal insolvency is a specialist area of law requiring expert advice.

We frequently act for –

  • creditors;
  • alleged debtors, and
  • trustees in bankruptcy including cases which may be complex and cross border.

At Tennyson we have also advised on individual voluntary arrangements both before inception and afterwards – again on behalf of all stakeholders including debtors, creditors, and supervisors.

We have received many compliments on our Head of Chambers work in this area of the law and solicitor feedback has included the following comments –

“I instructed Susan Brown to advise in assist in relation to an application to have a statutory demand set aside. The consequences of failing to do so successfully would have been potentially devastating for the client’s professional career and reputation. The case involved complex issues of jurisdiction and undue influence as well as contractual interpretation. Susan was of great help throughout the case and her technical expertise along with her client care skills were first rate. The client’s application was successful which was in no small part to the work done by Susan. I would have no hesitation in instructing her again or recommending her to others. (Senior Solicitor, Wilkin Chapman LLP)”.

“Susan is very knowledgeable but also approachable and provided a first class service to clients that I have referred” (Senior Associate Solicitor at Pinney Talfourd LLP).
