Business, Innovation and Skills
Cartwright King’s business defence team is highly experienced in defending investigations by the department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) and can represent you at every stage of the process.
BIS investigates and prosecutes commercial behaviour through its Companies Investigation Branch (CIB). This could be the result of a report by the official receiver of a liquidator following the liquidation of a business, the report of a judge or a complaint by other companies or members of the public. These investigations are usually very complex with potentially serious consequences. At Cartwright King we aim to provide protection from prosecution through thorough and meticulous analysis of evidence and finances.
Our expert business defence team can help with:
- Trading whilst insolvent (fraudulent trading)
- Trading Standards
- Directors’ duties under the Companies Acts
- Failing to keep accounting records
- Failure to co-operate with Insolvency Service, Official Receiver (OR) or the liquidator
- Shadow directors
- Disqualified directors
- Bankruptcy infringements
- Restraint orders
- Serious crime prevention orders
Cartwright King also has expertise of defending clients in investigations bought by many other agencies and industry bodies including Food Standards Agency, DEFRA, Companies House and the Financial Services Authority plus others.
Cartwright King has offices in Birmingham, Bedford, Bolton, Derby, Leeds, Leicester, London Temple, London Fleet Street, Luton, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Northampton, Nottingham, Oxford, Sheffield and Worcester.
