Working with individuals

Whether you’re struggling financially, facing competitive pressures, dealing with difficult trading conditions or looking to retire, there may be more options than you think.

Our expert restructuring and insolvency team are experienced in supporting directors and stakeholders to assess their situation, explore the full range of options and decide on a realistic course of action – with the ultimate aim of helping you survive, revive and thrive.

Business improvement and recovery

In difficult times, professional support and guidance can make all the difference. If you’re under pressure, we will listen closely and think creatively about how to help you reboot your business or extract shareholder value.

We work together with your management, financial institutions, advisors and other stakeholders to provide effective, workable solutions that will preserve and enhance the viable aspects of your business.

Corporate insolvency and advisory services

Closing down or winding up a 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.

Our restructuring and insolvency team aim to avoid formal insolvency wherever possible. We look to preserve and rescue all or part of your company in order to minimise job losses and liabilities to creditors. Your directors will receive impartial advice around all of the options available and we will work together to find the best solutions in the circumstances.

Of course, sometimes a formal insolvency procedure is the preferable (or only) route out of your difficulties. Where this is the case, our highly experienced team will help you find the appropriate process for your circumstances and provide expert advice and support throughout.

  • Arrangements and Reconstruction
  • Business Improvement
