Why Choose Us

Our Approach

We are a specialist business law firm that only accepts work in areas within our expertise. We also have a small selection of trusted partners with whom we work closely on more specialist areas of commercial law.

Our approach to clients is very much a long term approach where we want to build a lasting relationship with the businesses we work alongside. We will take time to find out about you, your business and your goals in our first consultation with you, which will be free. Only if we think we are the right firm for your business will we suggest engagement terms.

Our Fee Structure

As we only work within areas of law where we are very experienced, it is usually possible to offer you a fixed fee structure for any commercial transaction.

Our Clients

We are very proud of the quality of our extensive client base, which is unusual for a firm of our size. We consider that this is due to our approach to limiting our work to fields of law where we are experts and to the focused but flexible approach we take towards meeting our clients’ needs and expectations.

We work closely with some of the largest accountancy firms in North Wales (including Gardners Chartered Accountants and Williams Denton Accountants and Tax Advisers) and are called in by them to work alongside them when their clients encounter financial difficulty or need advice on a commercial transaction.  We pride ourselves in working in partnership with these firms, enabling them to service their clients’ needs in what are very specialist areas of law without their client perceiving that they have had to venture outside their firm.

Knox Insolvency also works alongside other law firms, providing them with a “bolt-on” insolvency department and enabling them to continue to service their clients’ other legal needs, with Knox Insolvency dealing purely with the insolvency specific queries.  We respect the existing solicitor/client relationship and only take on the work where we are specifically invited to assist.

Our overriding aim is that a client will be satisfied, not just with our initial advice but also the eventual outcome.  The fact that our business is built on repeat referral work from our professional referrers (accountants and solicitors) is proof that our work is of the highest quality.  We would be pleased to provide direct references to other legal and accountancy practices thinking of using our services.

Our first client meeting is always free, we generally attend the meeting at the accountant’s/solicitor’s practice alongside the referrer and our service is at absolutely no direct cost at any time to the referring firm.

Although she is fully qualified as a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner, Andrea Knox does not take insolvency appointments (i.e. she chooses not to act as a Liquidator/Administrator etc.), preferring to concentrate on the Solicitor side of her qualifications in her Knox Insolvency practice.  This gives Knox Insolvency a unique selling point in that there is absolutely no incentive whatsoever for Knox Insolvency to recommend an insolvency appointment to a client: wherever possible we try and keep businesses going outside an insolvency process.

We also work closely with our referrers and their clients in the early stages of a business experiencing difficulty.  This course ensures that a client wishing to inject further capital to support a business does so in the best way, ideally so that he is protected in the event of an eventual insolvency, when he will not lose personal assets (e.g. a house) in the event that the business eventually fails.

We also have a wide range of businesses for whom we work directly.  These range from an international sports regulatory body to local small companies, partnerships and sole traders.  We tailor our services to match the needs of each individual client.  Again, we would be very happy to obtain direct references on request to provide prospective clients with the assurance of the quality of our services.
