About McTear Williams & Wood

As the leading specialist insolvency and business rescue firm working across the South East we are committed to providing clients with the best possible advice.

We give clients all the facts and options and support them through to the optimal solution for their company. From business rescue through to the full range of insolvency options our qualified professionals will ensure the best outcome for your company.

Over 20 years ago we started working with small and medium enterprises and their professional advisors – mainly lawyers and accountants. More recently we have worked with all types and sizes of business from small companies employing a handful of people to large regional companies. If you are considering the future of your company you need to be able to weigh up all the options. We think outside the box to find that there are more routes back to recovery when directors engage our services at an early stage.

As licensed insolvency practitioners we are equipped to tackle any challenge for businesses that are in distress. However, we are also Chartered Accountants with vast experience throughout the firm for almost any financial forecasting requirement. We don’t just skim through the numbers and jump straight into insolvency options. Some would have you believe that insolvency pretty much means the end of the business road – but we don’t see this automatically follows.

At a free and confidential initial consultation meeting we will explore all your current business issues and financial information so we can give you independent, impartial, professional advice and the optimal solution.

We can:

For prospective clients we can assess the warning signs and advise on the best course of action.  If brought in early we can often avoid the need for formal insolvency.  Perhaps the most important service we offer is an initial free and completely confidential consultation where we can often identify the core problems and point the way forward.

For more information on any of our services please call our main office number 0800 331 7417 or use the contact form and one of our experts will contact you in due course.

McTear Williams & Wood firm profile

A track record of helping companies return to profitability

McTear Williams & Wood was formed in 2000 by Andrew McTear, Chris Williams and David Wood. Andrew and Chris had previously worked in the corporate recovery department of a so-called ‘Big Four’ accountancy firm. When it pulled out of the insolvency market in East Anglia they saw a gap in the market for quality business rescue and insolvency services for SME businesses within East Anglia and set about trying to fill that.

Andrew and Chris joined forces with David Wood who was running a successful Suffolk based insolvency practice at the time. McTear Williams & Wood grew quickly gaining a reputation for getting results. New offices were opened and today McTear Williams & Wood is one of the largest regional independent business rescue and insolvency practices in the UK providing clients and professional advisors with comprehensive business rescue and insolvency services employing a team of six insolvency appointment takers and over 60 staff working from offices across South East England in Cambridge, Colchester, Ipswich, London, Norwich and Peterborough.

In the first instance we always recommend a free initial consultation with one of our senior team where we can work to understand the issues facing your business and discuss all the options available.
