Our focused, specialist unit helps companies get back on track through restructuring and, where appropriate, guides them through corporate and personal insolvency procedures, advising on future legal and commercial issues.
The team has been behind major deals which have ultimately saved thousands of jobs and helped businesses recover and thrive. The key to long-term company health is to recognise early signs of a business in decline and take action before it is too late.
We act for organisations of all sizes, from small businesses to multinationals, insolvency practitioners, banks and factoring companies. We have built strong relationships with national and international clearing banks such as HBOS, Lloyds TSB and RBS.
Our team also has a robust insolvency litigation practice, particularly useful within a personal bankruptcy context.
We have recently rolled out innovative funding solutions designed to help insolvency practitioners. They allow our team to help pursue cases which traditionally would not have been possible, ultimately increasing the amount of money recovered from insolvent estates. Our specialist team can also assist in bankruptcy cases and winding up petitions to bring about payment of debts.
The team works closely with the client’s management team, in complete confidence, to resolve each situation, however complex. You can call on the expertise of Watson Burton senior level practitioners in areas such as corporate, property, commercial, fraud, employment and intellectual property law to address all aspects of a corporate recovery or insolvency situation.
During turbulent times, you can be assured of practical commercial solutions from Watson Burton’s experienced corporate recovery and insolvency team.
