We operate as one global team from our offices in key financial centers around the world, helping our clients unlock, restructure, trace and recover value in complex distressed situations.

Our service philosophy and approach
We are transparent, responsive, experienced, commercial, and accustomed to working under intense pressure and to tight deadlines. We regularly mobilize multi-disciplinary teams around the world to respond to the needs of our clients rapidly, collaborating with local professionals where necessary. Those teams will then provide constant engagement on every aspect of an assignment, whilst being sensitive to local business customs, practices, and language.
Our teams have extensive experience in:
- maximising overseas asset values
- running distressed M&A processes, and
- tracing assets and monies which are held in or have been diverted via offshore financial centres.
We have a growing presence in key offshore financial centers with offices in Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Mauritius, Singapore, and United Arab Emirates (DIFC) (UAE), and a strategic alliance in Australia with Sydney-based Cathro & Partners. The cross-border nature of our work, and the prevalence of complex group structures, have led to us taking numerous insolvency appointments in OFCs such as the British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands, and the Channel Islands. Our Managing Directors have extensive experience in assignments in many jurisdictions including the Channel Islands, Belize, BVI, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Russia, Sierra Leone, Singapore, South Africa, UAE, Ukraine, and USA.
We always seek to align our fees with the needs of our work providers and are comfortable working on a success basis and entering into conditional fee agreements. Where we agree to act on a contingent basis this will often provide an opportunity for clients to convert potential write-offs into revenue.
We are a member of the leading global insolvency forum, ‘Insol G36’, and sit side-by-side with best-of-class leaders in cross-border restructuring. We are also a member of PrimeGlobal, an award-winning association of independent accounting and business advisory firms, comprised of more than 300 highly successful member firms in over 100 countries. We collaborate with members of both groups to deliver seamless cross-border solutions.
