Overview

Few law firms can offer the type of wide ranging experience which we bring to the table. Our strength in depth is illustrated by the fact that we have a dedicated Finance Team of 23 solicitors including eight partners. Forming part of our Finance Team, the business recovery and restructuring practice is highly respected and ranked at the highest level by leading directories and commentators. Embracing the Government-inspired enterprise culture, our lawyers in this area instinctively seek solutions that preserve jobs, enhance value and benefit stakeholders. We are one of the few law firms operating on a national scale who can genuinely claim to cover the whole spectrum of business support and insolvency situations.

We have experience which is second to none in formal insolvencies (administrations, receiverships, liquidations, voluntary arrangements and bankruptcies) and in turnarounds and restructurings. Our track record of success in dealing with large and difficult cases up to the House of Lords is a reflection of the quality of expertise in the Team. We act for lenders, insolvency practitioners, turnaround specialists, management teams and creditors.

Of course it is not just business support specialists that clients need. Our Team is augmented by our Real Estate and Insolvency Litigation Teams.
