Insolvency is a business like no other. My approach is simple. Help the person who comes to me for assistance.
It is simply a case of first understanding the situation, think about it carefully, than form the best plan for the person asking for help. If there is a job in it for Findlay James brilliant, if not, no problem, it’s good to help, we are not desperate for business, and we know from experience that we may well be paid back with a referral from that person in the future. At the end of the day, we all like to repay a favour.
So don’t expect a hard sell from Findlay James, in fact the opposite applies. We don’t tend to chase up prospective clients after meetings, too be honest we rarely have to. Our clients want the truth, the facts, the real options, and that is what they get.
At the end of the day, when you decide to put your faith in a professional, what you really want is no surprises, no moving the goal posts after the forms have been signed. That is our aim, to make sure you fully understand your choices and what you are getting yourself into.
All Insolvency Practitioners are looking to get in front of potential clients and sign them up for a liquidation, administration or voluntary arrangement. We are no different in that respect. Every Insolvency Practitioner has the same powers and duties and must deal with clients to the same ethical standards. There are big firms small firms, and yes, medium sized firms. As a rule of thumb, small firms deal with smaller clients, large firms deal with larger ones.
We are trying to be different in that we are a small firm, but operating nationally via a network of associate accountancy practices who work closely with Findlay James to deliver insolvency services in their local area. This business model has been operating successfully now for several years. It allows us to be flexible, to enjoy economies of scale at our Head Office in Cheltenham, with a network of experienced qualified accountants supporting our clients locally when needed. By operating on a significantly lower overhead basis than our larger competitors we can make more from less, we are not under pressure due to large fixed overheads, and hence under pressure to sell you a solution that you don’t need. I hope that makes sense to you if you are looking for assistance and uncertain where to turn. Check out our web infomercials, then if you think it would be helpful give us a call.
