The activities of Turnaround and Restructuring Professionals are by no means confined to headline grabbing high-street retailers and high-profile football clubs. In these challenging economic times, cases are just as likely to involve an ‘LLP’ as they are a ‘PLC’ with lawyers, accountants, financial advisors and even I.P.’s finding themselves commercially stressed & distressed.
This evening’s event will be chaired by Carl Mifflin, a local, experienced Turnaround & Restructuring Lawyer. In his opening remarks Carl will set the scene for the presentations to follow by sharing some of his own experiences of advising advisors in restructuring situations, and the value of sound advice going forward. The floor will then be taken by a specialist SME Business Advisor followed by a Turnaround Practitioner with a UK-wide reputation; each will look back at cases where professional business providers have needed their input in order to survive. They will then look forward with some sound advice for advisors on recognising potential disasters, rescuing companies, saving jobs and protecting reputations.
There will be time allocated for Questions and Answers.
EACTP: Tyrone Courtman of Cooper Parry LLP, President of the European Association of Certified Turnaround Professionals will briefly address the meeting on the new Europe-wide Turnaround Management Accreditation programme being rolled-out in 2013 across the UK and Europe.
Following the conclusion of the formal part of the evening, attendees will be invited to continue their discussions and enjoy some quality networking; refreshments have been kindly provided by this evenings sponsor: KSA Group Ltd – proud to be a TMA (UK) Corporate Sponsor.
