Company, Commercial and Insolvency

Civitas Law is “a key set for commercial work in South Wales, and members are instructed on a wide range of matters including insolvency, Chancery and public procurement.”  The Legal 500 (2019)


Civitas Law has barristers who have recognised expertise in a range of contentious and non-contentious work reflecting the business issues which can arise in modern domestic trade. Advice and representation can be provided on a referral or direct access basis.

Clients include trading companies and individuals who may find themselves caught up in a dispute with a trader, contractor, supplier or consumer. Civitas Law also has considerable expertise representing regulators and individuals who need assistance in the enforcement end of business whether via contract enforcement or under the Insolvency or Companies Acts or the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Members of Chambers have acted for HMRC, the Insolvency Service and Companies House. Civitas Law has handled for example the fall-out in relation to the Gwent Fleet Management fraud.

Advice can be given as and when required to meet the needs of the situation.
