Our team in London

Our Restructuring & Insolvency team, led by Andrew Hosking, Head of International and a Managing Director in our London office, has over 50 staff including specialists in corporate finance, investigations, eDisclosure and forensic services. 

Who we work with

We regularly work with global legal and accountancy firms, banks, private equity firms, hedge funds, and large corporates to deliver the full range of advisory services in jurisdictions throughout the world.  

What we do

Our team in London delivers a full range of advisory services, including restructuring, corporate finance, forensic investigations, advice on disputes, valuations as well as asset tracing and recovery.

Restructuring & Insolvency

As trusted advisers to lenders, private equity houses, hedge funds, government agencies, and major corporates, we advise on a range of cross-border matters. Our team has vast experience of advising on both stressed and distressed scenarios to maximize recoveries for our clients. Our expertise extends to multi-jurisdictional insolvencies, foreign recognition, and information gathering tools (through our investigations capability). Our deep understanding of enforcement options enables us to optimize outcomes for stakeholders.

Corporate Finance

Our Corporate Finance team, led by Managing Director Mark Lucas, advises entrepreneurs and business owners seeking expert, practical and independent advice when buying or selling a business or raising capital. Our team of mergers and acquisition specialists are recognized leaders in their market segments and are closely aligned with acquisitive buyer groups, both in the UK and internationally. 

Financial Advisory

We are trusted advisers to UK and global businesses and their stakeholders, providing a wide range of advisory services. We work closely with our clients to comprehensively analyze how a business is performing so that a clear plan of remedial action to turn a business around can be developed and then implemented. We regularly work alongside boards to improve financial and operational performance and maximize stakeholder value. This includes independent option reviews, turnaround and interim support, and corporate simplification and balance sheet restructuring.

Cross-border Asset Recovery

Our asset tracing and recovery services operate globally. We provide project management and litigation support on complex and multi-jurisdictional matters to repatriate the proceeds of fraud and corruption wherever perpetrators may have hidden funds or assets. Our team regularly consults with governments, law firms, banks, corporations, litigation funders, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), leading high profile and complex investigations into bribery, corruption, misconduct, conflicts of interest, embezzlement, and misappropriation of sovereign wealth. 

Forensic Accounting & Investigations

We provide independent advice and support for sovereigns, international governmental organizations, financial institutions, and commercial parties to identify wrongdoing and mitigate economic loss and reputational risk. We undertake investigations for various purposes including the investigation of high profile, global frauds, as well as wrongdoing by individuals and corporates, regulatory investigations, corruption and bribery investigations, investigations arising from contentious insolvency matters and electronic frauds. Our approach to delivering successful investigations is based on our experience that acting promptly increases the prospects of securing vital evidence and maximizing recoveries.

State-of-the-art eDiscovery

We assist clients in all stages of an eDiscovery exercise, from identifying and preserving data to document review and production. We provide a software platform and actively work with clients and external counsel to ensure technical aspects of the discovery process are identified, and further assistance can be deployed where necessary. We regularly draw from the expertise of our in-house forensic accounting, asset recovery and investigation specialists to address key litigation matters as they arise and assist clients with navigating data to establish best-practice workflows. Our experts advise on searching and filtering, perform ‘Technology Assisted Review’ workflows as required and, in the latter stages, ensure that relevancy, privilege and tagging have been completed before producing a final disclosure set.

Our other services include: 

  • Valuations
  • Disputes
