The primary goal of the corporate insolvency team is to work with companies to save their businesses, and where this is not possible achieve the best possible outcome for all stakeholders.

In light of government supports established during the COVID-19 pandemic coming to an end throughout 2022, Revenue communicating its intention to resume regular collection and enforcement activity and the damage to many companies bottom lines resulting from increased costs driven by inflation we believe more than ever that there are many companies who could benefit from our expert advice.

It is our experience that the key to successfully turning around a company is early intervention. Taking a proactive approach and acknowledging financial difficulty early is challenging but it is something that can truly save a company.

If you suspect your company is experiencing financial difficulty, we would welcome your enquiry with our insolvency team. Get in touch with us today to arrange a confidential and free consultation to discuss your company and how we may be able to help.
