MAY 2017 - New image for French Duncan Restructuring & Debt Advisory

On 31 March 2017, French Duncan Business Recovery rebranded to become French Duncan Restructuring & Debt Advisory (R&DA). The new brand better articulates the work the team does to assist individuals and companies in financially vulnerable situations.

The division is led by partner and head of Restructuring and Debt Advisory, Eileen Blackburn, together with Brian Milne and Linda Barr.  They are supported by an excellent and highly skilled senior management team with experience not only in insolvency and restructuring but industry, legal services and banking. The team operates from offices across the central belt in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hamilton and Stirling, with a total of 23 members of staff.

French Duncan Restructuring & Debt Advisory advises on all aspects of corporate insolvency processes including administrations, compulsory liquidations, creditors voluntary liquidations, members voluntary liquidations, receiverships and company voluntary arrangements.

The team has extensive investigation, advisory and restructuring skills to assist a variety of stakeholders, including directors, secured and unsecured lenders, private investors and creditors, both prior to and during restructuring including formal insolvency processes.   The team can also assist businesses with cash flow optimisation, independent business reviews, options analysis and informal payment plans should a company require turnaround support. The team understands that each company has its own set of unique circumstances and so advice is provided on a tailored basis.

We can also assist shareholders to wind up solvent companies via the process of members’ voluntary liquidation. Working with the Company’s tax advisors and our own in-house tax experts the team will ensure optimal tax efficiency, maximising shareholder wealth whilst at the same time attending to all statutory and administrative duties associated with winding up a solvent company before returning the surplus funds to the shareholders.

We are recognised leaders in the field of personal insolvency advice and have a wealth of experience in advising on sequestrations and protected trust deeds, operating through our dedicated consumer debt arm, FD Debt Solutions. As part of the rebranding, FD Debt Solutions launched a dedicated website: http://www.fddebtsolutions.co.uk/ which advises the consumer debtor, tailoring every debt solution to the individual.  This website has been designed to ensure the person enters a process that is sustainable, allowing them to exit the solution debt and stress free.

FD Debt Solutions works in close contact with the money advice sector and has over many years forged a strong relationship with this sector. This allows FD Debt Solutions to ensure that debtors who require access to the Debt Arrangement Scheme or other informal debt solutions are referred to this sector without delay.
