Insolvency Practioners

We represent insolvency practitioners in matters relating to the IPA, including written responses, statements and legal representation in Tribunals.


Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) Disciplinary Solicitors

As a member of a regulated profession, Insolvency Practitioners are accountable to the Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) for breaches of professional standards and disciplinary complaints. Historic issues under the ACCA also fall to be dealt with by the IPA.

At Richard Nelson LLP we have the experience and knowledge to assist anyone working in the insolvency sector when facing formal complaints brought by the IPA against them. Our success rate is exemplary.

Defence Before Insolvency Regulators

Our solicitors provide advice, assistance and representation from the outset of an investigation, including responding to initial requests for information, preparing a written statement to the complaints, through to the legal representation before the Tribunal of the Disciplinary Committee. The sooner we are involved, the greater influence we can have on the outcome.

We pride ourselves on being approachable, realistic and robust. We will vigorously defend your position where complaints are contested, part contested, or where they are accepted and require the circumstances explaining fully to ensure maximum mitigation to achieve the best possible outcome.

We are professionals who specialise in defending professionals.
