Restructuring & Recovery

Our restructuring and recovery team is available to advise on the extent of, and the solution to, a company’s problems. Ireland is going through difficult times, and companies in all business sectors are finding themselves under increasing financial pressure. Where possible, we can provide a plan for the rescue of a company’s business. We provide a professional service which offers practical business recommendations and solutions.

Our dedicated team provide a range of services for a company that finds itself trading insolvently, including the organisation and hosting of creditors’ meetings, as well as providing advice to the directors personally.
