Many clients we see blame their professional advisors for their current parlous financial state.  In this topic we will look at:

  • The culpability of accountants, lawyers and others in their clients demise;
  • The real reasons we see for insolvency;
  • Tips on how to manage a client’s troubled times;
  • What is best time to call the resuscitator or the undertaker.
