Abandoned company - where does client stand?

A individual client of mine was involved with 2 other people as directors of a limited company.

My client had no involvement in the company and was 'convinced' by the others to be a director. Without going in to the intricate details, he genuinely didn't have any part in running the business or working in it and never signed any documents whatsoever.

The company has since got in to financial difficulty and ceased trading with 2 CCJ's totalling £25k with potential winding up proceedings to follow.

The 2 other directors have resigned their directorships, disappeared and left my client as the only director.

Can he resign and abandon the company completely?!

Any advice appreciated, an insolvency lawyer is my next stop.
