Supporting our clients
Our teams provide expert advice on complex restructuring and insolvency issues in a variety of areas.

Crisis stabilization and turnaround
In the early stages of a turnaround, the right support is necessary to create financial stability, assess cash flow and identify opportunities to improve short-term liquidity. Through diagnostic analysis, we provide stakeholders with a clear understanding of the causes of underperformance and the strategic opportunities for the business.

Accelerated M&A
We provide advice and manage transactions associated with the acquisition or disposal of distressed assets or businesses, frequently to short timescales.

Exit strategy services
We fully project-manage the sale or closure of underperforming or non-core corporate entities at maximum value.

Formal corporate insolvency mandates
We provide advice and support to distressed companies, their creditors and other stakeholders to protect assets and maximize recoveries. This includes appointments under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act, Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act or other legislation involving an appointment of a monitor, receiver, trustee or investigator.

Asset recovery and tracing
In formal insolvency processes such as liquidations, or when supporting ongoing litigation or fraud investigations, we use creative approaches to identify and recover misappropriated assets to provide cost-effective value recovery.

Operational and financial restructuring
Our specialists help organizations realize significant business process improvement, implement new business strategies, divest non-core businesses and design new capital structures aligned to the dynamics of the business.

Debt advisory
Through our deep understanding of the funding landscape and detailed knowledge of the credit process, we devise tailored funding solutions as part of a sustainable capital structure in line with the strategic ambition of our clients.

Pension schemes solvency
In many parts of the world, our Grant Thornton International network advises companies and trustees on the solvency of pension schemes.

Financial monitoring for regulators
Our Grant Thornton International team also advises central banks in relation to the solvency of financial institutions.
