Leading business rescue and recovery specialist Begbies Traynor has announced that it is moving its growing team to larger offices in the centre of Sheffield’s business district.
The firm has signed a ten year lease for 3,000 sq ft of office space in Fountain Precinct. As well as giving the team more space, the modern offices also feature large meeting rooms and provide a more convenient and prestigious environment for clients.
Currently located out of town in Cemetery Road, the firm has been looking for larger, city centre offices to house its team of insolvency and restructuring experts which has increased by 50 per cent since the firm became part of Begbies Traynor Group.
“It has taken a surprisingly long time to find the ideal S1 location. We’re looking forward to being in the heart of Sheffield’s business district, enabling us to play a more active role in the city’s business community,” explains Deborah Lockwood, partner of Begbies Traynor Sheffield office. “Our higher profile location will make it even easier for local firms and professionals to access the full range of specialist business support services that we can provide as part of Begbies Traynor Group.”
Partner and restructuring specialist Daren Bekisz adds: “As well as providing traditional insolvency services, we are leaders in supporting businesses in difficult situations who need non-insolvency led restructuring advice to identify solutions that allow businesses to continue trading and move forward.”
Partner Adrian Graham comments, “We have seen significant growth in the region over the last two years, working with businesses to find solutions to the challenges facing them. As we slowly emerge from the recession and companies prepare for growth, it is vital that they have access to the best possible support and are aware of the full range of options open to them.”
Begbies Traynor Group currently has eight offices and employs a total of 106 staff in Yorkshire and the North East. The group offers a full range of professional services including insolvency and corporate recovery, restructuring, investigations and risk, forensic accounting and pensions advice.
