Winding Up Petitions

Winding Up Petitions in Leicester, Leicestershire and nationwide

Hollingsworths advise clients on issuing and defending Winding Up Petitions.

A Winding Up Petition is an application filed with the Court that may lead, if the application is granted by the Court, to the liquidation of the Company. It is therefore a very serious threat to a company on the receiving end of a Winding Up Petition.

Our advice on Winding Up Petitions includes:

  • Issuing or defending a Winding Up Petition
  • Injunctions to restrain the presentation or advertisement of the Petition
  • Advising on options following the threat of the Winding Up Petition, including Administration and Company Voluntary Arrangements
  • Negotiating the dismissal of the Petition

The advice required by a Company facing a Winding Up Petition is time critical. For advice on Winding Up Petitions, please call us on 0116 204 7260 or email us.
