No further action in Insolvency Service Criminal Investigation

No further action decision achieved in criminal investigation by the Insolvency Service into breaches of s.11 CDDA 1986, s.360 Insolvency Act 1986 and the Fraud Act 2006.

Bridie Edge was instructed by a company director who was accused of acting as a director and obtaining credit unlawfully due to his bankruptcy status. Bridie was able to exploit evidential issues to undermine the narrative presented by the Insolvency Service.

Following the submission of written representations, the criminal investigation team conceded the position and the matter was dropped against our client.
