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.
