CWD works extensively for Insolvency Practitioners and company directors in handling the many diverse legal issues that arise during a corporate restructuring or insolvency. Our insolvency team can advise individuals or company directors on every type of insolvency regime, from voluntary arrangements at one end of the scale through to administrations, LPA receiverships, liquidations and bankruptcies at the other end of the scale.

CWD also gives extensive assistance to Insolvency Practitioners in the realisation of assets for the benefit of creditors. This is achieved in a range of ways, including legal proceedings for the recovery of book debts, possession proceedings (both property and plant/machinery), applications to set aside transactions aimed at depriving creditors of their legitimate rights and the prosecution of numerous other insolvency offences under the UK’s insolvency legislation against directors, shadow directors and their associates.

Success stories

Hi Vanessa

Thank you for your email I received the Deed of Settlement this morning.

I would also like to thank you for everything you have done for me. I know it hasn’t been easy or straightforward and I really appreciate all the help you have given. I don’t think I would have made it without your help and support. Hopefully you don’t get too many clients like me.

Hope you and your family are well and coping with this second lockdown.

Again thank you so much.

Kind regards

Hi Vanessa,
I would like to thank you for your commitment and professionalism throughout this case and would happily recommend you guys to any other poor sod in the same predicament.

Morning Vanessa,
I would also like to express my thanks and appreciation for your hard work on this case. Throughout, you have remained professional and provided us with excellent advice of which we are both grateful.

When I searched for a law firm to take on this case, I Googled, found CWD and read a few reviews on the firm. I have to say that CWD should feel proud to have you and equally, I would have no hesitation in recommending CWD.

Whilst the result was not a clean break, an 80% reduction with no extras and repayment of the last 3 months is an amazing achievement; variation of spousal maintenance is a very difficult case to prove!!

Thank you for everything, you have been truly amazing. My future is sunny now, for which I will always remember you.


I would just like to close by saying that I genuinely appreciate everything you have done for me. Not only have you been extremely professional, but you also brought a human and understanding element into a very stressful and unpleasant situation and made everything so much easier to cope with.

In the nicest possible way, I hope that we don’t have to meet again on a professional basis. I wish you and yours well and hope that those who have need of your services in the future will appreciate you and everything you do for them.

I have employed Simon Terry on several occasions, over 10 years, ranging from personal legal issues to Mergers and Acquisitions. I have found Simon to be efficient, professional and cost effective. Simon is highly results focussed, very effective and a pleasure to do business with.

I would recommend Simon without hesitation and I will continue to work with him in the future.
