Recovery Services

Marco Piacquadio Director - Head of FTS Recovery

If you have a client or are a director who’s fallen on hard times, likely facing insolvency, you’ll be looking for someone to help guide you or the client through the difficult times ahead. The situation can be unnerving as the rules surrounding business recovery and insolvency are complex. Having helped businesses in such circumstances for many years, we know managing an insolvency process is intricate and stressful.

When it’s you or your client under the spotlight, and if you’ve little or no previous experience in this area, you need to know you have access to the right advice. We believe that as soon as a business shows warning signs of financial problems, early intervention can help a business recover and get back on track.

How FTS Recovery can help you and your client

FTS Recovery’s a team of expert Insolvency Practitioners providing critical solutions for companies facing financial distress.

We work with stakeholders to maximise value to help to protect their position with commercial advice that sits within the parameters of the relevant legislation. We also work with our wider service lines within Fortus Business Advisors & Accountants, to include FTS Capital Partners, a refinance led conduit able to deploy funds via debt or equity funding.

We understand what it’s like to have clients under pressure, and to have them reach out for reassurance and protection. Hearing advice from an independent source will often bring greater clarity in finding the right way to go. Our role’s to turn advice into action and help your clients to make courageous – but appropriate – decisions.

We’ll be unquestionably honest, and where possible, ensure they grasp the opportunities available to them.

Early communication’s key

There isn’t a special formula for calculating the precise moment any troubled business owner should reach out for help. One thing we’re clear on is the earlier we’re made aware of what’s going on in your client’s business, the more options may be available to them. There’s no such thing as speaking with us ‘too early’ – advising on problems whilst in their infancy can prevent them becoming unmanageable.

We’re realistic and fair

When clients are feeling under pressure and struggling to get on top of things, often their first assumption is that they’ll ‘lose everything’ or have to ‘wind up the business’.

This is often not the case.

It’s important to focus on what can be done, rather than what can’t, so we’re always keen to bring new ideas and approaches to the table.

Insolvency will only be the outcome if all other options of turning things around have been exhausted. We know when delivering difficult news, it’s important to be sensitive to the situation, but also realistic and fair. Our recommendations will always be to achieve what’s best in the long term.

Our specialist team

Our reputable and qualified team of Insolvency Practitioners are highly experienced in working with clients facing insolvency, advising businesses of all shapes and sizes, from a variety of sectors. Importantly, we understand and sympathise with that’s happening to your client.

Each situation’s totally unique and so we tailor our solutions with this front-of-mind. Reach out to us whenever you need for a free initial meeting with you and your client to talk through their situation, and take those first all-important steps towards a positive outcome.
