Remaining a Director after Disqualification

Director Disqualifications Defence

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

Remaining a Director after Disqualification

It is possible to remain a director of a company post-disqualification, if you have received permission from the court to continue to act as a director.

If you continue to act as a director without obtaining the necessary permission, you can be found liable to face a fine or even risk imprisonment.

Our expert director disqualification team can assist you in obtaining this permission from the court, by making an application under Section 17 of the Company Director Disqualification Act 1986, enabling you to continue in business, with various safeguards being in place to protect creditors.
