Court Liquidation

A Court Liquidation is commenced by order of the court on foot of a petition. The petitioner in a compulsory liquidation is most commonly the company or a creditor who will petition on the ground that a company is unable to pay its debts.

We accept appointments as court or official liquidator.

Examinership

Examinership is a process in Irish law whereby the protection of the Court is obtained to assist the survival of a company, allowing a company to restructure with the approval of the High Court. Introduced by the Companies (Amendment Act) 1990 the facility is an effective process for comnpanies to deal with onerous debt while retaining the core business. At McCarthy Walsh we can guide a company through the process.

Receivership

A receivership is a process by which a creditor (usually a financial institution), who holds a charge on the assets of a company as security for its debts, appoints a Receiver to recover the money due to it.

 

The function of a Receiver appointed by a debenture holder is to take possession of the assets, subject to the debenture holder’s charge. Typically, the Receiver will then realise those assets and pay off the debenture holder. However, depending on the terms of the appointment, the Receiver might decide to continue trading with a view to increasing the value of the company’s assets or, alternatively, the Receiver might sell the business as a going concern.

 

Our objective is to sell the business as a going concern to safeguard the jobs of the employees and help maximise the return for the secured creditor.
