Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in the UK. What does this have to do with a cease and desist letter?
Has there been any written claim against the former directors?
One letter should be sent referring to the verbal communications explaining that the limited company was the entity due to pay the settlement agreement, it was unable to do so through insolvency and the former directors aren’t personally responsible and the person should not make a claim against the former directors as such a claim would fail as a matter of law. Any such claim will be strenuously defended by the former directors and legal advice should be sought as to th distinction between a company debt and a personal debt. That is technically not a cease and desist letter, it is just a denial of debt letter. Get it sent and if proceedings are raised you will have to defend them. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
