Our Approach

Our licensed insolvency practitioners, who individually, hold the required qualifications to act in any formal assignment and are licensed by their respective professional bodies, the Insolvency Practitioners Association.

We do not use intermediaries in the provision of our services and it will always be a partner of CFS Restructuring LLP that provides you with the advice on all of the options that are available to you for consideration.  We will, if requested, put our advice in writing, all of which will be part of our free of charge consultation and, in the event that should you choose to instruct CFS Restructuring LLP on any formal matter, we will agree our professional fees with you in advance of commencing the required work.

Our partners have over 100 years’ experience between them and continue to work on assignments of varying sizes.

We are business owners ourselves and fully understand the issues that are faced on a daily basis, so if you have any concerns about the affairs of your Company, get in touch with one of our licensed insolvency practitioners for free one to one advice today.  If you are concerned that you will be pressured into making a decision about your Company’s affairs, all we can say is don’t be, we will always allow a client sufficient time after the provision of any advice to determine which way they
would like to proceed.

Professional Standards

CFS is proud to have adopted the codes of conduct and ethics policies of both the IPA & ACCA, valuable organisations and continue to maintain their high levels.

As part of this process we ensure that our clients have complete transparency and clearly set out what we are engaged to achieve and the outcomes you can expect from our engagement.

Richard Saville Insolvency Practitioner
Richard Saville
Insolvency Practitioner

Richard started his insolvency career in 1978 with Spicer and Pegler (latterly Deloitte & Touche) in Nottingham before joining Deloitte Haskins & Sells, now PWC. During his time with Deloittes he worked on a number of well known insolvency cases as well as experiencing a two posting to Hong Kong where he dealt with three of the largest insolvencies in the territory at that time.

In 1994, Richard left to set up his own insolvency practice, Savilles, which over the years grew to a level of almost £2m of gross fees, employing 14 staff. The practice quickly established itself as one that prided itself on client care and handled a number of high profile local and national cases.

In 2002, Richard agreed a sale of the practice to Begbies Traynor, although stayed on as the Regional managing partner for the East Midlands, until 2015 when he left to once again set up his own practice, this time with three of his most trusted and capable partners.

Richard has an extremely broad knowledge across most industries having effectively dealt with pretty much every type of business around!

Jill Hoesam Senior Insolvency Manager
Jill Howsam

Jill worked at PriceWaterhouseCoopers until 1994 when she joined Richard Saville in setting up his own insolvency business before selling to Begbies Traynor in 2002. Jill, Richard, Andrew and Janette took the initiative to form their own Limited Liability Partnership in September 2015 trading as Corporate Financial Solutions.

Having worked in the industry for over 25 years, Jill has significant knowledge of the whole range of insolvencies, both corporate and personal.

Memorable assignments have included trading a printing company in Stockport with 60 employees and trading a pottery company in Burton on Trent with over 90 employees in a members’ voluntary liquidation.

Whilst Jill would like to say she was a keen runner, a number of injuries have recently made it more of a spectator sport rather than a participator!

Janette Eckloff Insolvency Manager
Janette Eckloff

Returning to insolvency work, following a 15 year sojourn bringing up two wonderful children, Jan joined the Nottingham office of Begbies Traynor in spring 2010, quickly re-establishing the excellent working relationships she previously enjoyed with a number of her former colleagues.

During the last six years, Jan has gained valuable experience in a wide range of different insolvency assignments, specialising in Corporate Insolvency. Jan now applies her insights, along with recognised analytical, operational and organisational skills to the core services provided by CFS Restructuring LLP, incorporating Case Management and Insolvency Administration along with the general office management of the Partnership.
