Don’t let them drag you down: Fighting your corner when insolvency strikes

Stewarts

Description

With the removal of the emergency Covid measures, and the growing supply chain and workforce crises, the UK is set to see a spike in corporate failures. But what if those failures include your suppliers or customers?

This webinar looks at how to limit the impact on your business when others fail, and examines the special powers of administrators or liquidators when you have suffered loss through fraud.
