Office holder claims under the Insolvency Act 1986 present an important alternative, or additional, means of recovering assets in corporate insolvency cases. Section 212 provides a summary procedure that allows office holders, creditors, and contributories to bring claims against officers, former office holders and other persons involved in the promotion, formation, or management of the company. Section 213 provides for a civil remedy against directors and knowing parties for fraudulent trading; and section 214 enables claims to be brought against directors for ‘wrongful trading’ after a company should have entered liquidation or administration.
