Failure to comply with any of the legally-prescribed duties of a company director can lead to disqualification. Likewise, wrongful trading, breaches of competition law and certain criminal convictions can have the same result.

If you are facing director disqualification proceedings, our experts will help you understand the case against you and offer proactive advice aimed at avoiding disqualification.

Director disqualification explained

Directors who fail to adhere to their duties can be disqualified, regardless of whether their conduct was deliberate or negligent. This can have a devastating impact on your career, as director disqualification can last for anywhere between two and 15 years. There may also be further penalties, such as a Compensation Order.

Director disqualification solicitors

If director disqualification proceedings have been started against you, we can advise how best to handle the situation. It largely depends on how the proceedings were initiated – for example, following bankruptcy, a criminal conviction or an investigation by the Insolvency Service.

Generally, you have two options open to you: to accept the allegations and enter into a voluntary undertaking, or to deny any wrongdoing. We can explain each route in more detail, offering tailor-made advice that is specific to you and your circumstances.

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for you and your family. No one wants to be accused of misconduct. We are here to protect your position and to minimise the consequences as best as possible. If there is evidence to dispute the disqualification, we will present this to the necessary authorities, working to get the case against you dropped.
