Regulated firms

In an era of ever-evolving regulations and increasingly complex financial landscapes, regulated firms face unique challenges.

This is where our expertise comes into play. We understand that navigating the intricate web of compliance requirements, reporting standards, and industry-specific regulations can be a daunting task. That’s why we are here to provide tailored solutions that not only meet these stringent demands but also facilitate growth and sustainability.

Wind down plans

We are able to support regulated businesses with the preparation and, if necessary, implementation of practical and compliant wind down plans in order to meet regulatory requirements and also to provide the Board and other stakeholders with confidence that a plan is in place to preserve value and reputations in the event that trading should cease for any reason.

Solvent liquidations

We are able to deal with solvent Liquidations for regulated firms which have ceased operating, supporting the Board of directors to deal with the cancellation of the business’s permissions and ultimately wind up the legal entity in a structured and transparent way.


In order to wind down a regulated business, it may be that the protection of a formal Administration process is required in order to safeguard against creditor enforcement action whilst steps are taken to maximise recoveries and protect consumers’ interests.

There are various different aspects in this type of assignment which we are experienced in managing:

  • Analysis of options to maximise returns for creditors;
  • Resourcing and managing core operations;
  • Handling inbound complaints and outbound re-dress exercises;
  • Tailoring communications to consumers and other stakeholders;
  • Compliance with regulatory requirements and communication with FCA;
  • Collection of receivables whilst marketing a business for sale;
  • Consideration of exit strategy where a sale of the whole business can’t be achieved.
