Business Recovery and Insolvency

If your business is experiencing financial difficulties or cashflow pressures, Smith Cooper can help provide candid, proactive commercial advice on your options when you need it most.

Financial pressures present themselves in many ways: a statutory demand, a winding-up petition, inability to pay amounts due to suppliers including the Crown, a bad debt, or personal guarantees being called upon.

Time is of the essence with debt matters and the sooner we are able to understand the problems you face, the more likely we are to be able to provide options and acceptable solutions for all parties, including main stakeholders and your creditors.

We appreciate that at times like these, the demands on your finances are high and cash is not readily available. For that reason, your initial meeting with one of our insolvency specialists will take place free of charge. At this point, we will determine your financial position and discuss the best strategic options for you to adopt at this most sensitive and pressured time.
