          Acquisition & Disposal of Insolvent Businesses & Distressed Assets

          Getting the best value from every sale, securing the purchase, maintaining control and reassuring customers.

          We specialise in advising organisations buying and selling insolvent businesses. With a wealth of experience acting for a range of stakeholders, our aim is to provide practical, commercial advice at each step of the process. 
          Our clients trust us to understand the challenges facing any such acquisition or disposal.  You need experienced, reliable advisors, ready to act on little or no notice and get it right first time, every time. Clients tell us that we listen, advise and act in a way they find reassuring.  

          Whether acting for buyers or sellers, insolvency practitioners or liaising with banks, lenders, debt collectors or debt agencies, we draw on the wider knowledge and resources of our large commercial law firm.  Our team includes not only mergers & acquisitions, insolvency and corporate creditor services, but also intellectual property, real estate and wider commercial specialists.

          What sets us apart is our ability to work collaboratively across teams and sectors, as an extension of your organisation.  We work hard to move quickly and effectively, to manage the reputational loss that comes from delays.  Our over-arching objective is to respond to your commercial objectives, securing the best deal and results.
