Debt refers to the money owed by an individual or entity to a lender. You may for instance have credit card or student debts - if these start getting out of control and you are not able to pay back the amount required then the advice of an expert solicitor is crucial as they can help you to find a solution.

Similarly, companies often owe money to banks or other lending institutions and need to ensure that they pay off the money owed in a timely manner. The running of a company is complicated and regular legal advice will ensure that your company adheres to all regulations.

Bankruptcy and insolvency

If a person owes more than the value of their assets and has no means of paying back what they owe then they can consider filing for bankruptcy. This is not a decision to be taken lightly as it will seriously affect your credit rating and your suitability for certain jobs. Before you get to this point it is essential that you seek legal advice. Similarly, if you file for bankruptcy then a specialist solicitor should be consulted as they will be able to guide you through the process.
If a company finds itself in a situation where it can no longer pay its lenders and staff then it may be considered as insolvent. The services of a solicitor specialised in company insolvency will be necessary to ensure that all affairs are handled correctly.
