Business Restructuring and Insolvency

Remake, remodel, rebuild

  • Enabling innovative restructuring through practical solutions
  • Helping clients to navigate insolvency and find the path to recovery
  • Achieving successful results under pressure of time

Restructuring and insolvency are the most dramatic of options for any business, and the most stressful for business owners.  

We deliver pragmatic advice to individuals, partnerships and companies across the spectrum. Acting swiftly in difficult circumstances is of paramount importance: we identify the key issues, discuss the available options and create timely solutions.

In insolvency proceedings, we represent creditors, members, and Insolvency Practitioners in multiple sectors. When giving advice on the restructuring process, particularly at an early stage, we can put companies on the road to recovery and avoid formal insolvency proceedings. Supplementing this, we enjoy strong relationships with Insolvency Practitioners, accountants, forensic accountants and investigators.

To deliver the best outcome, we ensure that our clients fully understand all the available options. Based on a comprehensive understanding of what each business needs, our advice is clear and practical. In making recommendations, we take time to evaluate your priorities in order to secure the right outcome.

Our restructuring and insolvency services include:
  • Acquisitions and disposals
  • Administrations
  • Directors’ duties
  • Dispute resolution
  • Investigations
  • Liquidations
  • Pre-packs
  • Receiverships
  • Voluntary Arrangements (Company and individual)

Our team also has an established track record in resolving partnership disputes and in advising individuals who potentially have personal insolvency issues. Our substantial experience in dealing with HMRC includes early negotiation to reach a compromise and avoid higher penalties. We also advise on other regulatory matters, such as directors disqualification proceedings.
