Distressed Business Sales

Our Special Situations team combines our Corporate Finance and Restructuring teams, providing bespoke and integrated M&A support across stressed, distressed as well as insolvent transactions.

Transactions may involve the sale of shares, business and assets or debt, potentially delivered via an insolvency mechanism (for example, pre-pack). Our team focuses on delivering the maximum value for clients in what are often complex and unpredictable times, most commonly caused by deteriorating sales performance, shortfalls in liquidity, a disengaged or underperforming management team and a lack of willingness from financial stakeholders to provide additional funding.

We act with speed and sensitivity to ensure that critical information gets to potential purchasers to enable them to make decisions. A fast track process also minimises the risks of your business’ problems becoming public knowledge and undermining the preservation of value. Our team of specialists has a strong track record in acting discretely, building critical relationships in challenging circumstances, whilst delivering value for stakeholders, shareholders and creditors.

We also offer access to a network of qualified entities who seek to buy businesses through accelerated processes. The benefit of this network is that it allows the team to identify serious bidders within hours, rather than days.

Recent transactions have included the rescue of Titanic Uniform Supplier, a 200 year-old business providing marine and aviation uniform supplies, the sale of leading North West industrial injury law firm Roberts Jackson Limited and a famous specialist sporting goods brand.

Our team brings together the right combination of expertise, allowing us to work successfully alongside businesses and their financial stakeholders. This enables us to offer specialist advice and deliver the best outcomes for clients. Together with our combined experience, collective insight as well as deep sector knowledge, our offering is unrivalled and we pride ourselves on acting quickly and independently. This means that directors and their stakeholders gain the right advice when it is needed, receiving partner attention throughout the course of the assignment.
