Our partners provide seamless advice across borders, understanding and respecting the issues and sensitivities which arise when businesses in distress operate in more than one country.

We bring together expertise from across the breadth of BDO.  Our advice is pragmatic and tailored to each client’s circumstances.  Our service is personal and partner-led, combining the best of a local organisation with the quality, professional expertise and reputation of an international firm.

Our services include:

Formal insolvency appointments

  • We have dedicated teams who deal with contentious and complex corporate insolvencies, including fraud investigations and forensic asset tracing.
  • Our corporate simplification team assists our clients to streamline their corporate structures, including the use of solvent liquidations.

Complementing the provision of restructuring advice to lenders and other creditors, we have a dedicated Corporate Advisory team who act for companies, their shareholders and their management when they are experiencing financial, operational and/or event driven change or stress. 

The team has 'real world' experience and leverages BDO's acknowledged Multi sector global expertise.

Services commonly require: analysis of issues and options; identification of turnaround, liquidity and operational restructuring solutions; implementation of plans, including taking interim management roles; and assisting boards in their engagement with stakeholders.
