Having worked with Insolvency Practitioners, financiers and other stakeholders for over 25 years on many different rescue and restructuring matters our Business Recovery & Turnaround Team are well placed to advise directors on the different issues facing businesses in distress.

By instructing the Business Recovery and Insolvency Team at The Wilkes Partnership Solicitors you will receive personal, practical and partner-led advice that hands you solutions rather than simply rehearsing the problem.

We can help you

  • With corporate and individual insolvency advice
  • By highlighting real restructuring options when trading is tough
  • With legal support for directors under attack after liquidation

Business Continuity Update – COVID-19

September 2020

To our valued clients and partners,

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve we wanted to take the time to reassure you of the actions we are taking to protect our clients, colleagues and the wider communities, whilst working to maintain our services to you at this time.


Our commitment to you

We are open for business and will continue to provide you with the best service we can in the safest way possible, but in-line with government advice our offices are now closed for face-to-face meetings and all staff are now working from home until further notice.

If you have an appointment scheduled your legal advisor will be in touch shortly to discuss your options, if they haven’t done so already.


Our staff are set up and ready to respond to you as usual. We are working hard to mitigate any disruptions, and will continue to provide you with the legal service and advice you need, delivered with the high-level of service you have come to expect from Wilkes.


If you do experience a slight delay in hearing back from us, please bear with us. We will be in touch.


If you have a general enquiry please call us on 0121 233 4333 or email us at law@wilkes.co.uk, or contact your normal point of contact.


Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. We look forward to returning to normal, with a handshake, as soon as possible.
