Insolvency and Corporate Recovery

If you think you need insolvency advice, you probably do!

Insolvency can impact upon almost any business.

  • Have you contracted with a business or an individual who has become, or who is about to become, insolvent?
  • Do you have concerns over your own solvency or the solvency of your business?

Whatever your situation, advice should be taken as early as possible on the potential implications.

BTO advises on all aspects of insolvency. We have considerable experience in acting for creditors, liquidators, receivers, administrators, trustees in bankruptcy and under trust deeds, as well companies, their directors, partnerships and individuals who find themselves faced with an insolvency situation.
