McGrathNicol is a specialist Advisory and Restructuring firm, helping businesses improve performance, manage risk, and achieve stability and growth. Our Restructuring team deals with businesses in financial distress. Partnering with boards, management teams and financiers facing situations of financial distress, we quickly identify root causes, formulate turnaround strategies and implement value-maximising restructures. We advise companies across all industry sectors and business sizes.

I come from what would be considered an ‘unusual background’ within the industry... Despite not studying Accounting, I was able to use the foundational skills I learnt in both degrees and transfer this to everyday work.
