Personal Debt & Insolvency.

Personal Debt and Personal Insolvency & Bankruptcy Solicitors.

Getting into debt can happen to any of us, and it’s important to seek legal advice sooner rather than later to ensure you find a solution to manage them.

The specialist team at Lanyon Bowdler can offer advice on a variety of solutions, including Individual Voluntary Arrangements (known as IVAs), debt management and bankruptcy.

There are lots of reasons for having difficulties with debt – you may have taken on too much credit, or perhaps you have been made redundant or changed jobs which has suddenly reduced your income. Whatever the reason, if you are struggling to make your monthly repayments, we can help.

The insolvency lawyers here at Lanyon Bowdler are approachable and will deal with your case with sensitivity and respect. We can talk through the options available to you, and whether it is by filing for bankruptcy or managing the debt, we will work together to get your finances back under control.

Filing for Bankruptcy

If filing for bankruptcy is the best option, our lawyers have the experience and expert knowledge to guide you through the process from start to finish.
