HOW WE WORK
Bayley Barclay & Mills LLP works with businesses across all stages.
BB&M helps early stage companies to adopt the optimal structure, operational processes and financial controls to deliver the growth to take the business towards its goals. This is often combined with introducing the right funding partners.
BB&M understands the constraints in a growth business and tailors its support accordingly.
Where a developed business has stalled or is failing to create value for stakeholders, BB&M will work with the company to identify what it needs to stop doing, what it needs to start doing and what it needs to better. BB&M will support the implementation, checking and reviewing progress to ensure objectives are achieved.
Businesses decline for many reasons. BB&M can quickly identify these reasons and develop a rapid turnaround programme that includes stakeholder management, operational turnaround, financial restructuring and cash management. BB&M is able to take an advisory role or take an appointment, for example as the Chief Restructuring Officer.
BB&M is experienced at quickly developing trust and building a strong positive relationship with the management team when appointed by an external stakeholder. Often such an appointment can create a negative impact, however, BB&M understands how to embed with the business and work together.
