Testimonials

"I would like to re-iterate my thanks to Ruth and her staff for putting my finances back on track, so efficiently and effectively. As a now retired person, I hesitate to imagine my financial outlook had you not successfully orchestrated my IVA."

Mr S

"Dear Filippa, thank you for delivering an impassioned speech on the issues that frustrate you and your fellow practitioners. We feel sure the points you raised were noted by those who mattered and we are especially grateful for your commitment."

Peter Sargent & David White R3 (Association of Business Recovery Professionals)

"Ruth and her team helped me through a difficult time in a caring and supportive way. I know I can always go to Ruth for advice and guidance which will be given impartially and fairly for all parties concerned. This is very much an open, clear and professional relationship which I appreciate."

Mr B IVA

"The most important thing about Ruth's approach is she is professional, not pompous. She is sympathetic to clients who have problems, listening and finding solutions..."

Mr M. Referring Accountant

"I found Ruth and her team to be patient and approachable as they were always at the other end of the phone to answer any questions that we may have thereby providing us with comforting assurances as much as possible. They were also frank and candid in telling us where they did not have an answer."

Mr L Company Director

"The liquidator is Filippa Connor, and from discussing the issues involved, I have found her to be thoroughly professional and alert to our concerns about the behaviour of [the company in liquidation]."

Mr R Hulls, Independent Surveyors Association
