This event, part of the regional activities of the TMA (UK), will focus on the local, national and international turnaround and restructuring marketplace.
Informing us of the local situation will be Pitmans LLP, the largest law firm in the Thames Valley area. With two offices in Reading and one in the City of London, Pitmans have a long and impressive track-record in Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency; as such they are in prime position to present their overview of local turnaround conditions, cases and concerns.
KSA Group Ltd are a nationwide firm of turnaround, restructuring and company rescue specialists, with regional offices and representatives as far afield as Edinburgh, Berwick upon Tweed, Gateshead, Birmingham, Bristol and London. Their operation is supported by a vast online presence of websites and internet response mechanisms, receiving literally hundreds of hits per-day from troubled directors and advisors across the country. As such they are able to report on what is happening in the national turnaround marketplace.
Bryan, Mansell &Tilley LLP are specialists in International Turnaround situations and who better to report on the global situation than Alan Tilley, an internationally renowned figure with the TMA and the industry as a whole. Alan will speak on the current trends, challenges and cases across the globe. The presentation will also contain a brief review of the TMA Europe Conference, which will have taken place in London on 6th & 7th June, and cover the newly launched EACTP (European Association of Certified Turnaround Professionals) accreditation programme.
There will be an opportunity for questions and answers following the presentations.
