Wellbeing support for directors of businesses facing financial distress

Our restructuring and business advisory lawyers have collaborated with Care first to offer company directors access to wellbeing and support counselling

Free access to wellbeing and support counselling

Our market-leading restructuring and business advisory lawyers recognise the emotional pressures associated with running a business facing financial distress and the impact this can have on mental health and wellbeing.

That is why we have collaborated with leading wellbeing services provider Care first to offer free access to an assistance programme, which includes 24/7 confidential counselling for directors of companies that engage our restructuring and business advisory team.

At Shepherd and Wedderburn, we appreciate that companies, their directors and their business owners may require support as they navigate periods of stress or distress, whether temporary or ongoing, and take potentially significant decisions regarding their business. Our team has exceptional experience in corporate advisory matters, including turnaround assignments, debt restructuring, and insolvency processes, and will work with you to identify the right strategy for your business.

By partnering with Care first, we are delighted that we can also give our business owner clients and the directors of our corporate clients the opportunity to receive the dedicated, expert support they may need to care for their own wellbeing, so they are fully equipped to care, in turn, for the needs of their business and their employees.

Our mental health support partner offers confidential counselling, information and advice services 24 hours a day, with all calls answered by a counsellor who is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
