Reducing the period of a Director’s Disqualification

Director Disqualifications Defence

We are specialists in insolvency litigation practice and assist directors of companies in defending claims brought against them.

Reducing the period of a Director’s Disqualification

Our specialist team can also assist you in seeking to reduce the period of disqualification by successfully negotiating a disqualification undertaking.

Under Section 8A of the Company Directors Disqualification Act of 1986, it is possible for a disqualified director to seek to reduce the period of time for which they are disqualified, if they are able to persuade the court that the period of disqualification is unreasonable and that circumstances exist which enable the Court to re-evaluate the disqualification period.

Our expert team can advise you on this process by reviewing the merits of your claim prior to making any application, preparing any documentation and witness statements supporting your application and dealing with any response to your application.
