Trading the businesses effectively, successfully achieving going concern sales that resulted in the preservation of many jobs and significantly better returns to stakeholders than was thought achievable at the outset of administration.


Administration – Leisure and Tourism

Our insolvency practitioners have successfully traded the administration of a five-star boutique hotel in London that at the time boasted London’s only commercial Helipad. Due to the nature of the hotel’s clientele this assignment became high profile with both the national press and many well-known celebrities. A successful restructure and going concern sale of the business was achieved saving over 100 jobs and returning a significant dividend to the hotel’s creditors.

Our insolvency practitioners took responsibility for the liquidation of a national chain of c.800 hotels and pubs that were, due to external factors, significantly under-performing. Whilst a going concern sale of the group as a whole was never achievable, following a successful restructuring, individual pubs and hotels were able to be sold preserving hundreds of jobs across the country.
