Insolvency &Personal Bankruptcy

Difficulties in paying the money you owe can arise because of redundancy, bereavement or a career change or because you have over-stretched your finances by taking out too many loans and other forms of credit.

As soon as problems arise, seek professional legal advice on your options. Specialist legal advisers at Else Solicitors understand the pressures you are under and can offer prompt, impartial and confidential advice on ways to reduce and manage your debts.

Bankruptcy is one way of dealing with your debts, but it is important to know that there are other options available. We can talk you through them and help you decide the best course of action in your personal circumstances.

How We Can Help

Else Solicitors’ insolvency and personal bankruptcy team can advise you on:

  • Bankruptcy.
  • Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs).
  • Debt Management.
  • Financial Crisis Management.

An initial consultation with a personal insolvency or bankruptcy solicitor is free and without obligation.
