Business Recovery Services - Manager - Midlands
About the Team
The Midlands Business Recovery Services Delivery Team comprises c.55 professional staff across two offices in Birmingham and Castle Donnington that provides both advisory and executory services to a wide range of banks, corporates and other stakeholders.
We handle a significant volume of middle market trading administrations, and we act as advisors and consultants to a wide range of lenders, companies and their stakeholders. Our cases span many commercial and industrial sectors and we are able to call upon the specialist resources that reside elsewhere in the firm, which often makes the difference between an acceptable outcome and an exceptional one.
We also operate across all segments of the market providing advisory services to lenders, creditors, and companies in troubled financial situations. This can include financial and operational restructuring, cost improvement, working capital management and delivering innovative commercial solutions to distressed businesses.
Other areas which we are involved in include Accelerated Mergers and Acquisitions, and advisory work in the public sector, Pensions and Real Estate.
