Bankruptcy & Insolvency Litigation

Wills & Estates Litigation


A Barrister acting for you in bankruptcy and insolvency can ensure if you’re a creditor that you collect the maximum return possible on debts of a bankrupt, if you’re a debtor that you are discharged from your debts in a timely fashion, and that trustees deal fairly with all parties. Although a non-lawyer trustee in bankruptcy remains the central actor in the bankruptcy and insolvency process, lawyers have always played key roles in ensuring that the law is respected by debtors, creditors and trustees alike.

Gordon Scott Campbell provides firm, effective and creative advocacy before trial and appeal courts hearing bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings. He will negotiate an optimal case resolution for you using skills learned from many years serving as a professional negotiator, but equally advance your interests in contested proceedings should an acceptable resolution be unachievable. He has conducted hundreds of trials and appeals, and knows what judges are looking for in arguments and evidence.
