Insolvency and corporate recovery

Within: Insolvency and corporate recovery

Tughans’ insolvency practice attracts praise for its ‘very strong business acumen’ and assists banks, accountancy firms, insolvent companies and directors across a spectrum of matters, including the appointment of administrators, debt recovery and liquidation proceedings. Highlights included representing Boxpak in a dispute with insolvent bakery company Reynards and its administrators regarding a £250,000 debt owed to Boxpak alongside stock worth £100,000 held by Reynards, which was subject to a retention of title clause in favour of Boxpak; the stock was successfully returned to the client. Other clients include Bank of Scotland, Keenan Corporate Finance and Bank of Ireland. Toby McMurray and Fearghal O'Loan lead the team, which also includes director Kevin Gallagher, who is singled out for his ‘good attention to detail and commercially minded approach’ towards contentious insolvency matters.
