How we work with solicitors

We have strong relationships with most of the major firms of solicitors in East Anglia as well as many of the specialist insolvency lawyers in London and nationally.

Reciprocity is a major driver for us. Referrals are made both pre insolvency where a rescue is possible and post insolvency when assets have to be traced and claims made along with business sales and litigation generally.
