Special Situations

Our team has extensive experience advising mid-market companies during periods of underperformance, distress, and insolvency. We help clients solve problems in challenging, time-sensitive environments, through senior level attention, to ensure that all strategic alternatives are evaluated quickly – and develop tailored solutions for our clients and their key constituencies in order to resolve issues in a timely and effective manner.

We are one of the only UK mid-market corporate finance practices with a dedicated special situations capability which does not take insolvency appointments, avoiding any potential conflicts between a corporate finance mandate and taking an insolvency appointment.

We leverage our dedicated international special situations capability, combining our deep sector knowledge, our broad network and global infrastructure, whilst managing stakeholders to help clients efficiently develop, evaluate, and implement solutions that optimise the balance between short and long term interests for all the relevant stakeholders required to deliver a chosen solution.

Our team has a successful track record representing both debtors and creditors and offers a full range of advisory services including:

  • Delivering successful outcomes for challenging or distressed M&A, guiding boards through the process and managing stakeholders;
  • Raising fresh debt or equity, including to fund profit improvement plans;
  • Developing turnaround plans with management and supporting cash management; and
  • Strategic alternative and capital structure assessments, together with any resulting balance sheet restructuring.
