Insolvency Discussions At Midlands Networking Event

Published December 2017

Cranfield Business Recovery’s annual Cheese & Wine networking event took place this week, giving professional advisors in the West Midlands a chance to find out more about the inner workings of insolvency.

In 2016, 16,500 UK businesses entered insolvency proceedings*– and this figure looks set to rise in 2017. For many businesses, they could potentially avoid going bust if they had early help and assistance. Cranfield’s networking event aims to help professional advisors to quickly recognise the warning signs and get expert advice for their clients.

Brett Barton, Director of Cranfield and licensed Insolvency Practitioner, said “This event gives us a chance to remind people that we are there to help and advise; not only when a business is already in trouble, but when the warning signs are prevalent. We work alongside some fantastic accountants, solicitors and banks in the West Midlands, and this event just gives them a chance to ask any questions and find out more in an informal setting.

“If this event means that we can help even just one or two businesses to continue trading, or to make an insolvency as painless as possible, it is more than worthwhile for us.”
