Commercial lawyers for successful entrepreneurs
In the event of (imminent) bankruptcy, it is important that financial positions are safeguarded and that the client is assisted in any (financial) restructuring. This involves the financial positions of both the partners and the company, as well as all those involved in the bankruptcy.
CLERXvanROYadvocaten has extensive experience in insolvency law, the area of law that provides rules for situations in which a company or natural person can no longer meet their financial obligations. For example, in the case of bankruptcy, suspension of payments or statutory debt rescheduling for natural persons.
CLERXvanROYadvocaten advises entrepreneurs on the possibilities of doing business with a receiver. Insolvency law is also an effective means of collection and is used (where necessary) when debtors refuse to pay voluntarily. CLERXvanROYadvocaten is able to provide the necessary assistance in any insolvency situation.
Many entrepreneurs come into contact with bankruptcy law. Usually not because of their own bankruptcy, but for example because a competitor, a debtor or creditor goes bankrupt. In case of bankruptcy, a receiver is appointed. A suspension of payment pronounced by the court is aimed at continuing the business and suspends the debtor’s payment obligation for a certain period of time. Bankruptcy law is also an effective means of collection and is used (if necessary) when debtors do not pay voluntarily.
As an entrepreneur, you always run the risk of directors’ liability. This means that you can be held personally liable for debts of your company, for example when the bookkeeping is not in order, when dividends are paid out while the company is not doing well, but also when fellow directors have made mistakes. It is wise to seek legal advice on directors’ liability, even when it does not seem to be an issue yet.

You can come to us for advice on directors’ and officers’ liability and for legal assistance if you are held liable, or at risk of being held liable, for the debts of your company. We always strive to bring your case to a successful conclusion as quickly as possible.
