The regulatory changes impacting the Big 4 audit practices are leading to divestures and splits between Audit & Restructuring previously unthinkable.  In the face of this, A&M’s Restructuring practice has grown exponentially year on year since 2017 and we have attracted top performers at Partner level (and every other level of experience) from our competitors in the UK and across Europe.

A&M is independent and unrestricted by any audit conflicts.  We have material Restructuring practices across the globe, including: USA, Canada, Caribbean, Europe, India, Middle East, Far East – and many of these are market leading in their individual markets.   Given our global scale, we are able to seamlessly deliver cross-border Restructuring & Insolvency mandates, alongside our full-service UK Regional Restructuring offering. Our UK Restructuring practice has established offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds, and has recently opened in Glasgow and Edinburgh.  Our growing team has developed an exceptional reputation for high quality work.
