Testimonials

We are always grateful for the many kind words from clients and advisors. They say more than we ever can.

Managing Director, National retailer with 22 stores

"Having traded successfully for over 20 years until recently it was devastating when we realised that our company would have to go into administration. But as we began to work with the team at McTear Williams & Wood believe it or not we wished we had been introduced to them at least six months sooner. That would have avoided months of heartache and the business would have been in a stronger position. As it was McTear Williams & Wood guided us through a pre-pack which saved the profitable stores and the restructured business is now growing again."

Finance director, joinery company

"After meeting with Andrew McTear we both felt we had met someone who we could put our trust in and who would leave no stones unturned to help us rescue our business. We had been given two insolvency practitioner names and the other firm just wanted to put the company into administration. As things turned out that would have left any purchaser of the business and assets with significant employee liabilities which would have killed the deal and all the jobs would have been lost."

Managing Director, retailer

"It was a tough decision to make but it had to be faced, I made the call and McTear Williams & Wood were very, very helpful the whole time. They helped us to explore all the possibilities to find any way forward and they helped us identify that liquidation was the best option for the business. Certainly McTear Williams & Wood made the process quite straight forward for us there was lots of help and lots of contact with them throughout the whole process.”
