Clarke Jeffers specialise in corporate insolvency and rescue. In the last 7 years we have advised Insolvency Practitioners, banks, statutory bodies and many types of business including public companies, private companies and special investment vehicles. We have forged a strong recognised practice dedicated to a successful outcome for our clients.
Given the uncertain economic climate we realise that now more than ever, businesses need to plan ahead and form strong strategies to survive. Our experience in corporate rescue allows us to objectively review those plans and provide reliable advice to ensure the best chance of turnaround and survival.
In situations where survival is not possible, we can provide the necessary advice to ensure that the winding down process occurs with the minimum fuss and expense and in a manner consistent with the Law.
Clarke Jeffers also provide experienced advice in relation to receiverships, examinerships and schemes of arrangement with creditors. With the new “Examinership lite” on the horizon, many more Irish companies will have access to this relief through the Circuit Court. Clarke Jeffers have expended considerable resources in readiness for this new legislation and will be in a position to provide the strongest most reliable advice to our clients.
