Companies House Magistrates Claims

Director Disqualifications Defence

We specialise in insolvency litigation and assist directors of companies in defending claims brought against them.

Companies House Magistrates Claims

Under the Company Directors Disqualification Act of 1986, if evidence is provided of fraud, theft or similar acts you could face disqualification as acting as a director in the Criminal Courts.

An important example of this which is common amongst smaller companies is the failure to file your Annual Accounts and Annual Reports. A director can be pursued by the Registrar of Companies for this failure, with penalties ranging from a fine for a first-time offence, to disqualification for a period between one to five years if the offence is repeated.

Our expert team can advise you on any risks and liabilities you may face as a director of a company and assist you to correspond with the Registrar of Companies directly, negotiating withdrawals of proceedings, attending any hearing if necessary and making representations with a view to persuading the Court not to make a Director Disqualification Order against you.
