Andrew Ray, Criminal Law Solicitor, Bristol:-
“In late 2016 I realised that my then criminal law firm was heading for very choppy waters and urgently needed to take appropriate action. Peter O’Duffy was recommended to me and I arranged a consultation. Having carefully reviewed and dismissed alternative options, we concluded that liquidation was the best way forward in the circumstances. Advised and assisted by Peter I steered the company into liquidation. The process was inevitably quite stressful but I am positive that it would have been a lot more stressful and detrimental to my health had I not had the benefit of Peter’s guiding hand. The liquidation is now a distant memory and I feel rejuvenated in my new role as a self employed practitioner. I have no hesitation in recommending Peter O’Duffy and his firm to other directors who are facing up to financial difficulty.“
A thankful director based in Bristol:-
"When, due to a recession, my building services contracting company’s turnover and cash flow deteriorated I realised that it could not meet all of its commitments as they fell due. I was referred by our accountants to Peter O’Duffy with whom I arranged a briefing and advice meeting. From the outset I was confident that he appreciated the multiple implications for the company, its employees, staff and directors. Having carefully reviewed and discounted the possibility of proposing informal and formal arrangements with creditors, we jointly came to the conclusion that the company should go into creditors voluntary liquidation. When he was appointed liquidator, Peter regularly sought my input particularly as regards collecting debts. Our joint efforts resulted in realisations from debtors being sufficient to pay in full the bank whose liabilities I had personally guaranteed, to my great relief. We have remained in touch since the liquidation was completed, albeit that I have had no need to consult Peter professionally since then. In the unlikely event that I again found myself as a director in the same position I would definitely instruct Peter and his firm.”
Sally Pyburn, director of a dental temporary staff placement agency:-
"We were introduced to IP Services when our company was having serious problems with HMRC. Throughout the lengthy appeals and negotiations with HMRC we experienced from IP Services a very sympathetic understanding of the problems our company was experiencing. When every avenue had finally closed there was no other option but to place our company into liquidation.
Peter O'Duffy acting as the liquidator, although acting in the interests of creditors, was always polite, sympathetic, and helpful to us in guiding the winding up process through to its conclusion."
