Business continuity & contingency planning: Transaction advisory services

No matter the stage of the business life cycle, an unforeseen or sudden interruption to business, such as the coronavirus, can result in financial problems. Falling sales, a shortfall in cash flow and pressure to make interest and capital repayments all pose significant business continuity challenges.

Our multi-disciplinary Business Continuity team includes restructuring experts who can work in partnership with you to pro-actively assess and deal decisively with the continuity and contingency planning issues you face during unanticipated business scenarios.

To give your business the best chance of survival and recovery, reacting quickly and intelligently to signs of difficulty to business continuity is vital. Our expertise, experience and diplomacy are all key in helping to navigate difficult times and advising on appropriate action that will mitigate further loss. Through the RSM Global network we can also draw upon local knowledge for cross border assignments.
