The current economic situation has put many companies in a very critical situation forcing them to adopt measures in the financial and legal areas.
The multidisciplinary team of PKF Attest has a wide experience in the management of insolvency proceedings from different positions, which allows us to have a practical and decisive vision of the problems generated.
What we offer
Economic and financial analysis for the knowledge of the real situation of the business and its future viability and the implementation of early warnings to prevent insolvency, with the aim of anticipating the problems and therefore being able to take the appropriate measures to solve them, among which are the pre-bankruptcy and bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy and pre-bankruptcy institutions are not only liquidation mechanisms, but also restructuring mechanisms for the continuation of the business, but the later they are resorted to, the more difficult it will be to achieve this second objective. Preventive legal and economic planning and advice at the first signs of financial stress can avoid insolvency proceedings or help to emerge from them quickly and successfully, without incurring liability for the administrators, with the consequent risk to their private assets.
We accompany companies to prevent or cushion the impact of possible economic crises and in the case of being impacted to find the best feasible solution in each case.
