Insolvency Team of the Year - Law Awards of Scotland 2012
There is no doubt that for many businesses and individuals, these remain financially troubled times. As a consequence of the intensity of the banking crisis, many businesses that weathered the initial storm through cost cutting and improved efficiency are still finding the economic climate challenging at best. With little sign of bank lending increasing and the full effect of public spending cuts yet to bite, there appears to be no sign of relief for beleaguered businesses and individuals.
One consequence of these conditions is that more businesses and individuals are being exposed to insolvency related situations than ever before. Those in insolvency need advice on their options for rescue, turnaround and restructuring. Where this is not possible, they need advice on their duties and obligations. Creditors, whether secured or unsecured, need advice on securing and maximising their recovery from customers facing insolvency. Insolvency practitioners have a need for advice geared towards maximising the return to creditors.
