Within: Insolvency and corporate recovery

The insolvency practice at Birketts LLP focuses on value recovery, antecedent transactions and the representation of company directors, as well as administration proceedings in the construction and shipping industries.

Another highlight was the advice provided to RSM Restructuring Advisory on CPPT Services' company voluntary arrangement and related creditor claims. Ensors, Privilege Finance, Chantrey Vellacott and McTear Williams & Wood are active clients. 'Practical, commercial and knowledgeable' partner Laurence Weeks, who leads the team from Cambridge, is recommended.
