Alongside offering advice on formal insolvency proceedings, our expert team of insolvency solicitors advise businesses suffering financial stress - from sole traders through to large public limited companies. Our specialist insolvency and corporate recovery lawyers have experience with refinancing, restructuring and supporting directors with advice on their options and obligations. We also have considerable experience of advising creditors dealing with businesses in financial difficulty, including security reviews for lenders and advice on retention of title issues for trade creditors.

We work to high standards of regulation and combine our deep insolvency knowledge with a genuine desire to seek resolution. Where this is not possible, our case-winning litigators are on hand to provide sound advice and have experience of acting in High Court and Supreme Court cases.

We act for the Insolvency Service and, following a period of over a decade acting for HMRC, we were recently appointed to the Crown Commercial Services Full Service Panel for England and Wales as well as the General Legal Services Panel for Central Government.
