INSOLVENCY outfit CVR Global has joined Geneva Group International (GGI) – one of the world’s largest professional services networks.
The firm becomes the first UK-based specialist insolvency and debt recovery firm to join GGI, consistently ranked among the top ten associations in the world.
GGI is a global alliance of independent accounting, law and management accounting firms, and has more than 500 members and over 700 member offices worldwide.
Richard Toone, partner at CVR Global [pictured], said: “Becoming part of Geneva Group International is an exciting development for CVR Global. GGI celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015, and we’re looking forward to being an important part of the network’s future.
“Our membership gives us a strong platform to enhance our international restructuring and insolvency offering, particularly in China, Hong Kong, Russia and Eastern Europe, where we see significant growth opportunities.”
CVR Global operates as an independent provider of restructuring, insolvency and pensions advisory services and was established by former partners in the business recovery division of accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott in 2015.
The firm has six UK offices in London, Birmingham, Colchester, Northampton, Southampton and Hove.
