Insolvency fraud investigations

During formal corporate and personal insolvency appointments office holders have a duty to investigate if assets have gone missing and what claims and potential recoveries can be made.  The good news is that insolvency practitioners have extensive powers to investigate and carry out forensic accountancy of the insolvent company or individual's affairs.  The bad news is that very few insolvency practitioners focus in this area.

Our specialist team of highly experienced experts focus on complex contentious insolvency and fraud investigations, including in multiple jurisdictions and in the right cases work on a no win no fee basis.  Unlike many of our competitors we put our money where our mouth is.

If you are a creditor or professional advisor concerned that the directors of an insolvent company or the debtor have walked off with the assets and no one seems to be doing anything about it then McTear Williams & Wood is the answer.

If you are not satisfied that an existing insolvency office holder is taking your concerns seriously or is not pursuing what you think are viable claims it may be possible to appoint us in their place.  

McTear Williams & Wood is a UK market leader in this field and at any time you can contact our specialist investigations team on 0800 331 7417 for advice and guidance or to arrange a confidential consultation.
