The original and leading online Winding Up Search provider

Our online winding up searches enable you to mitigate risk and drastically reduce unbillable time.

Whether you choose to search the Central Index of Winding Up Petitions or call Companies List(formerly known as Companies Court), you’re wasting valuable time and money. Obtaining results via the premium rate phone number takes on average over half an hour at a rate of 75p per minute which is lost unbillable time.

We understand the issues our clients face when contacting and checking pending winding up petitions at Companies List which is why we built our online alternative.

Using our fast, user friendly online ordering platform, you can complete your order in seconds with zero call charges. No more frustration hanging around on the phone and multiple attempts to get through, simply order your search and receive results in your inbox within 15 minutes guaranteed! *

The smart way to check if a company has been wound up

From magic circle law firms to high street solicitors, hundreds of lawyers trust our winding up petition searches to reduce risk and gain a competitive advantage.

Whether you require a one-off search or 100s each month, our innovative solution will enable you to maximise efficiency, unlock previously unbillable time and reduce risk.

Blanchards Bailey

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your help in getting our account set up. Your customer service has been second to none! We all look forward to working with you moving forward.

Newbold Solicitors

I have been using the services of GlobalX for a few years now and the service I have always received is excellent, they have always gone above and beyond when I have needed assistance. They are a pleasure to work with

Lisa Marie Jones GCILEX

Our experience with GlobalX is like no other experience we have had with other search providers. The website is very easy to use, you know exactly where to go to place new searches and where to find existing searches. There is always someone on the end of the line who is willing to help, Ben Buckley and Tan Nguyen are extremely helpful not only assisting us when needed but keeping us updated with the progress of our searches.


Birketts has been using GlobalX for a number of years now and the quality and range of their services is excellent, and so is their customer care. Their website is extremely user-friendly producing quick and efficient results, and the CourtCheX service in particular is one we would highly recommend

L G Williams & Pritchard

GlobalX’s service is second to none. Tan and Ben in the property search team always answer calls and reply to emails without delay, making for a great personal service and getting our client’s property purchase off to an excellent start.

Morgan LaRoche

I have been a regular user of GlobalX’s conveyancing searches for several months and I highly recommend them. The ease of use of their website is outstanding, and the customer service received is always superb. In particular, Tan Nguyen and Benedict Buckley have always provided a professional and friendly service to both myself and my colleagues.

Peter Lynn & Partner

GlobalX have been excellent since we started using them. Tan, Kai, Ben and the rest of the team are very efficient and are always at the other end of the phone if there is an issue or if you need something doing urgently. They are also more akin to commercial and residential development sites than other search providers and offer a more bespoke service.

stevens bolton employment lawyer

Everyone is delighted with the efficiency and ease of use of the service – previously we had lawyers on the phone to the relevant court wasting huge amounts of mainly unbillable time. I would highly recommend this service.

Elliot Mather

We have only used CourtChex once, but we have found the service efficient and the cost very competitive. We will certainly be trying the service again in the near future and, if it works as well as last time, I will be rolling it out in our other offices.

Knights LLP

I spoke to the help desk yesterday who were absolutely fantastic and did the searches straight away. I'm very impressed by the whole set up you have and the customer service you all provide is excellent
