Business & Commercial Law

Cheryl Jones is an experienced Commercial Chancery barrister and esteemed Deputy Bankruptcy Registrar.

Cheryl’s Insolvency practice encompasses both personal and corporate insolvency. She welcomes Instructions in the following areas:

  • Company Voluntary Arrangements,
  • Injunctions preventing the presentation of a petition,
  • Director’s Disqualification,
  • Transactions at an undervalue and preferences, wrongful trading and misfeasance.
  • Applications to set aside statutory demands and bankruptcy petitions
  • Applications by trustees in respect of real property
  • Income Payment Orders
  • Third Party applications.

Cheryl was appointed Deputy Bankruptcy Registrar in 2008 and frequently sits in the Bankruptcy Division and Companies Court in the High Court. This experience gives her a very wide knowledge of the Chancery jurisdiction, ranging from Bankruptcy through to Directors’ Disqualification proceedings and the minutiae of Company Law, such as reduction of capital.

She regularly advises and acts for Insolvency Practitioners, Trustees, Creditors and Debtors and individuals in relation to a wide variety of matters. Also being a part-qualified accountant, not only gives Cheryl the ability to deal with complicated factual issues as well as the legal complexities, but also the ability to assimilate accounts quickly and efficiently.

In addition to sitting as a Deputy Bankruptcy Registrar, Cheryl was appointed Recorder in 2010, sitting in the South-East Region.
