Outside working hours, a member of our team is always available to be contacted on matters of an urgent nature. Contact should be made using the Chambers main number or email.

Company law

In tandem with its well-regarded expertise in corporate insolvency and restructuring, Twenty Essex is regularly instructed in relation to high-value and high-profile litigation and advisory work relating to company law matters, and internal and external corporate transactions and disputes, in the UK and worldwide (including in the major onshore, mid-shore and offshore jurisdictions).

Members have experience in dealing with shareholder and joint venture disputes; unfair prejudice petitions; derivative actions; contested takeovers; and disputes between companies, their directors and various regulatory authorities. They also regularly act in, and advise on, matters concerning misappropriation of company assets, breaches of fiduciary duty and corporate fraud more generally.

In addition, members are contributing authors to the leading textbook on directors’ duties: Company Directors: Duties, Liabilities and Remedies (3rd edition) and also to one of the leading general texts in this area of the law: Gore-Browne on Companies (45th edition).

The expertise available also covers all aspects of corporate restructuring and insolvency, spanning all areas of mercantile activity.
