Insolvency specialist Zolfo Cooper has created an advisory services practice, as it looks to grow non-restructuring disciplines.
The practice, headed by Graeme Smith, will offer a range of services including debt advisory, pensions advisory, capital management, and corporate finance.
Zolfo chief executive Simon Freakley said that the firm had been expanding its advisory services for some years due to demand from clients. “The creation of a dedicated advisory services practice which can not only support our internationally renowned and highly successful restructuring services business but also continue to win, and deliver, high profile engagements in its own right is a logical part of our growth.”
The firm is ranked 18 in the Accountancy Age Top 50 survey, with £39.8m fee income.
