In an uncertain and volatile economic environment businesses are facing some tough challenges where management decisions or external events can take them to the brink of collapse.

Early, quick, commercial advice is needed to see you through to recovery or insolvency.

Our team of nationally recognised insolvency specialists advise insolvency practitioners, companies and directors facing difficulties, and secured lenders on recovery strategies following a business becoming insolvent.

We work with Insolvency Practitioners who need help with the realisation of assets, advising on all issues arising from an insolvency event such as antecedent transactions and retention of title claims.

Our specialist lawyers also advise businesses experiencing financial difficulties and/or dealing with duress creditors, and creditors looking to recover a debt through bankruptcy or winding-up proceedings.

We’re also one of the only firms in the region to have two insolvency lawyers also qualified as insolvency practitioners.
