Testimonial for Permission to Act as a Director Following Director Disqualification. 

Director Disqualification does not necessarily mean that the disqualified person cannot act as a director whilst disqualified. There is a detailed process to go through, and our Director Disqualification Solicitors are experienced in making successful applications to the Court to obtain permission for the disqualified director to continue as a director whilst disqualified. This testimonial highlights a recent successful application.

This is What Our Client Had to Say Following His Director Disqualification

“I had recently been made subject to a director disqualification undertaking, which meant that I was prevented from being involved in the formation, promotion or management of any UK registered company.  I had by then put the failure of my previous business behind me, and started to concentrate on new employment I had secured.

I excelled in my role which resulted in my employer asking me to take on more responsibility and even a managerial position.  However, I was acutely aware that my changing role and progression within the business was potentially running the risk of me unwittingly breaching the terms of the Director Disqualification Undertaking.

Given the serious implications of breaching the Undertaking, I wanted to take specialist advice to protect my position.

NDP were recommended to me by one of their clients. Suky and Neil from NDP advised me that I could apply to Court for Permission to Act as a Director notwithstanding the disqualification undertaking that I had given.

I was impressed by NDP’s knowledge and immediately felt that I had selected the right people to help me. Suky Mann, solicitor, who was dealing with my application was extremely efficient. I was impressed with her ability to assimilate the evidence in support of my application promptly and with great skill and care, which ultimately resulted in the Court granting me Permission to act as a director and to be involved in the management role that I had been offered.

I cannot recommend Suky highly enough. She worked tirelessly to achieve an excellent result for me.”
