Providing expert business advice on company rescue, restructuring and insolvency 

Trading in difficult circumstances can result in a wealth of problems, impacting on both creditors and directors. Often companies continue to trade in financial circumstances that could give rise to potential personal liability for the company’s officers as well as possibly exposing creditors and other stakeholders to greater losses.

At PCR we believe in avoiding formal insolvency proceedings where possible and provide, where appropriate, clear advice on trading out of difficult circumstances by eliciting support from stakeholders in financial restructuring.

Sometimes formal insolvency processes cannot be avoided and in these circumstances PCR provide assistance in the full range of insolvency processes carried out under UK legislation.

We have offices in Uxbridge, Newcastle, London, Bristol and Sussex with additional representatives in Hertfordshire with clients coming to us from all over the UK.
