A failing business can often be rescued by restructuring it. We offer pragmatic advice to help stabilise and improve such businesses and avoid formal insolvency. Where business rescue is not practical, we work to maximise value for creditors, employees and other stakeholders.
We may be engaged by the struggling company itself, or by domestic and international lenders, creditors, pension funds, private equity providers, alternative investment funds or government agencies. Our top priority is always achieving the best possible financial outcome for our clients.
The solutions we offer include advice on selling (and buying) troubled businesses, streamlining organisations to improve efficiency, finding alternative sources of funding, advice on pensions schemes (which may become a heavy burden on a company), and a range of other corporate support services to help deal with major stress and upheaval.
Working with this team will often take you to company sites, in a role most suited to those who can perform calmly under pressure, thrive on new challenges and work well with a range of people.
As a trainee in our Business Restructuring business, you will study the following:
- ACA (from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) or CA (from ICAS) in Scotland
We help you to enhance this learning with our Initial Professional Development programme, through which you can develop the necessary personal, commercial and technical skills. Most of all, you will learn to exercise professional judgement in real situations.
