Closing down or winding up a distressed business can be a very tough and stressful time. Seeking advice at the earliest stages can ensure that it is done correctly - and give you the greatest chance of implementing a rescue process.

We look to preserve and rescue all or part of your company to minimise job losses and liabilities to creditors.
