Dismissing a Wrongful Winding-Up Petition

April 26, 2024

We were instructed by a construction company seeking our assistance to defend a wrongful winding-up petition. Due to the fast-approaching hearing of the disputed petition, we took instructions carefully and acted with speed to protect our client’s interests.

We ensured that the petition was not advertised in The Gazette, to avoid any adverse impact on our client’s bank accounts and business operations.

Our client had attempted to resolve the dispute in direct negotiations with the petitioner, which had proven unsuccessful. Immediately upon being instructed, our team stepped in approached the petitioner’s legal representatives; equipped with extensive knowledge of the law and the facts of our client’s specific case, we successfully obtained an agreement from the petitioner, that it would withdraw the wrongful petition with no order for costs against our client.

Our fast-acting and strong approach, with an eye for detail, ensured that our client avoided significant costs and difficulties for its business.
