Knowing you are dealing with a reputable and regulated company will help ease your mind when deciding who to entrust with your company problems. With over 400 staff and 40 offices nationwide, we are well-established and perfectly placed to support company directors, owners and shareholders. View some of our case studies below.

CASE STUDY 1 - MEMBER VOLUNTARY LIQUIDATION (MVL) CURES CORPORATE AMNESIA

- When a whole company in the engineering sector went into administration it became apparent that there were a number of companies that the management team were unclear about, a phenomenon commonly known as ‘corporate memory loss'. Despite being little more than empty shells, the companies had remained part of the group for so long that no one involved in the group was clear about the reasons for their continued existence. Nevertheless, the dormant companies required costly maintenance in the form of filing accounts and other corporate administration, as well as providing a confusing overall picture of the group’s structure.

Once those companies had been identified our team of specialists undertook MVLs to tidy up the group’s structure, saving costs and streamlining the entire engineering group.

CASE STUDY 2 - CREDITORS VOLUNTARY LIQUIDATION (CVL) FOR LARGE SCALE PRINTER

A London-based large-scale printer was given a cash payment to move from its site by the London Development Agency (LDA), making way for London’s 2012 Olympic Park.  After moving, the firm experienced financial problems due to a decline in the printing sector, a large extraction of money and increased pressure from creditors. The bank then took the decision to appoint us as administrators.

Our team secured the site, starting investigations into the company including analysis of assets and liabilities. One hundred staff were made redundant. Our investigations continue but proceedings are commencing against the former company officers and associated parties to return the funds to the firm.

CASE STUDY 3 - LIQUIDATION OF FIVE STAR BUILDING MAINTENANCE BUSINESS

- Following a restructure, a national building maintenance group, with over 550 staff over five sites, suffered from delayed payments from key customers and suppliers’ refusal to go on trading after credit insurance was removed on key trade creditors.

As Administrators, we worked closely with customers and former employees to ensure continuity of employment, where possible. Transfer of the contract to new service providers secured new jobs for employees, reduced employee claims, enhanced dividend prospects for remaining creditors and lessened disruption for customers, improving results from outstanding contractual debtors.

CASE STUDY 4 - VOLUNTARY LIQUIDATION OF OFFSHORE MARKETING AGENCY

- Our team of liquidators were appointed to one of the largest offshore marketing and advertising agencies. The agency, based in Guernsey, had a turnover in excess of £50m at its peak and 29 staff. The loss of significant media contracts brought about a decision by the parent company to put the business into voluntary liquidation.

Open Quote
Following our appointment, the Channel Island offices were closed, resulting in staff redundancies.
 
While time was against us all along, the fact that all jobs have been secured and no residents will be inconvenienced by the sale is excellent news.
