We work with companies of all shapes and sizes with all kinds of different problems, and have recently assisted with administrations, CVAs and restructuring within the retail sector, knock-on effects of liquidation for construction businesses, and insolvency problems in the care sector due to a rise in living wage and a reduction in local authority spend.
When we need to, we work closely with experts from across the firm, such as our Banking, Employment, Corporate and Real Estate teams, to help with wider issues and find unique solutions that you might not have considered.
