Why the client needed our help

We acted for the administrators of a London Nightclub which suffered due to extensive closures and restrictions during the Covid pandemic.

How we helped

Our advice led to a successful pre-pack sale of the business and assets back to the former management.

The outcome

The nightclub continued to trade under the former management, protecting both jobs and the wider local night economy.

Leonard Curtis has worked with Francis Wilks & Jones on a number of insolvency appointments over the years and in particular those with an asset based lending angle. I have enjoyed working with a legal team that has impressed with its depth of technical knowledge in that sector yet displaying a skill to balance this with advising on the practical and commercial issues we as insolvency practitioners face. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to asset based lenders and company directors.
