'Very thorough and entertaining. Best course I have attended'


This two day intensive training will concentrate on the key procedures in corporate and individual insolvency from pre insolvency through to antecedent transactions and post insolvency recovery actions.

The emphasis will be on a very practical approach with interactive sessions and case studies utilised throughout.
