Hart Shaw made a difficult situation and a painful process as straightforward to deal with as possible. Every aspect of the procedure and the options available at each stage were clearly explained. There was no attempt to promote a solution which would be of more benefit to the Insolvency Practitioner than to the person undertaking the IVA. The whole process was handled efficiently and without fuss. There was also a refreshing absence of value judgments attached to the advice and support given: this company understands that people can find themselves in financial difficulties due to bad luck or their best efforts to support a failing venture, rather than simply through buying too many shoes.

I was referred to Hart Shaw when my personal financial situation got out of hand. I was receiving a flood of letters and phone calls from people chasing money which was extremely stressful. Hart Shaw talked me through all my available options in a professional yet sympathetic manner. I decided to go for an Individual Voluntary Arrangement which my creditors accepted and this dealt with my debts without me having to be declared bankrupt. My problems are now behind me, I no longer worry and I would undoubtedly recommend Hart Shaw to anyone who is in financial difficulty.

Hart Shaw were constructive rather than destructive, and took an imaginative and positive approach. They have supported us superbly through the process.

The Hart Shaw team were excellent. They realised the viability of the business and thanks to them and the continued support of our customers and suppliers we are now in a very positive position.

Mr G, Director, Lincolnshire

During a time of financial difficulty and extreme stress which could have easily been terminal, the experts at Hart Shaw guided me through a maze of legislation and commercial protocols to a successful CVA. The business was maintained and is now thriving, jobs were saved and creditors received 48 pence in the pound. Christopher Brown and his team really went that extra mile for me and my company. I thoroughly recommend them.

Mr W, Director, South Yorkshire

Following adverse currency fluctuations, a large foreign bad debt threatened to close my company immediately. I was already acquainted with Hart Shaw and contacted Christopher and Andrew for advice. They dived into the situation, quickly grasped the problems and assisted me in putting the company into Administration. This enabled the company to continue trading and after a period of stabilisation proposals for a CVA were put to creditors. These proposals were accepted, the Administration was completed just six months after it started and I took back control of my company. Thanks to Hart Shaw’s help all jobs were saved and the company is now expanding.

Mr C, Director, Derbyshire
