Overview

The last 5 years has seen the insolvency market change radically. Our Southern team emphasis has moved away from traditional insolvency work to include a significant amount of advisory and restructuring / exit based advice. Our highlights this year have included further complex and high-profile cases.

Our specialist national restructuring and insolvency team provide expert advice on all matters arising from the financial distress of a business.  We regularly advise business owners, insolvency practitioners, pension scheme trustees and lenders (including Banks and Asset Based Lenders) offering a “Cradle to grave” service covering all their core needs and requirements. 

The team focuses upon lender led transactional insolvencies and high value complex restructuring work.
