In this Insights In Focus episode, we explore the multifaceted role of the insolvency professional by hearing from both practitioner and client.

Fraser Dick, managing director of Perfection Alloys, shares how the technical and emotional support of Tyrone Courtman, partner at RSM UK Restructuring Advisory, steered the business away from insolvency and towards recovery.

Tyrone goes on to explain his process for assessing the viability of businesses experiencing difficulties; and what motivated him to specialise as an insolvency professional early in his career.

It’s a timely discussion as insolvencies continue to surge, having tripled from January 2021 to March 2022, and further pressures are expected to press down upon UK businesses.
