At Griffin & King we value what our clients say about us...
"I contacted Janet Peacock during 2017 having been referred to her by a colleague who had used her services. I was having concerns with an international trading business I was running. After an excellent first year selling products across the globe, I decided on a stepped expansion plan in year 2 where a considerable amount of my own money was invested. Unfortunately sales did not go according to plan despite every effort to maximise every sales and marketing channel possible over many months. It was a very worrying time financially especially with a young family feeling that I had put everything on the line. It caused many sleepless nights. Janet advised me that the best option was a formal liquidation of the company. She handled all matters in a very efficient manner enabling me to focus my energies on securing a new role and returning financial security to my family, I also managed to recoup some of my own financial investment that had been made in the business. It certainly put my mind at ease. I would recommend Janet to anyone facing a similar dilemma. She has a lot if experience and a 'no nonsense' approach and takes the burden away at a time when it is much needed" Anonymous -18 October 2018

"Having been under creditor pressure for some time and not sleeping, I phoned Griffin & King and was put through to Janet. At this point I was convinced I could go on and get through and only wanted advice. After talking for a while it became clear that I was, in fact, Insolvent and didn't want to admit it. ?
Janet made the whole process so painless and for once I could sleep easily knowing that I was being helped and not chased.
Janet has always been on hand when needed, and I have never felt rushed or pressured in anyway.
Mike from Griffin & King who has taken over my case and has shown the same level of respect and no phone call has ever been rushed.
Through every part of the process both Janet and Mike have explained things in an easy way to understand while being very patient.
I can now sleep and have not felt this stress free in a very long time." PK - 24 September 2018

"When I became ill and found myself unable to run my company fully anymore I struggled on to continue the best I knew how, but unfortunatley when it came to the end of the road I had to make some hard decisions.
I was so scared and unsure of what laid ahead of me having to close my company and deal with the creditors and procedures for this.
I contacted Griffin & King and spoke to Janet Peacock, after a brief discussion with Janet I felt immediately calmer and for the first time in weeks and weeks I didn't feel alone.
I have to be honest I had other compnaies call me back after my phone call with Janet as I had already phone around others for information and prices, and again I have to be honest I didn't hesitate in making my mind up and going with Griffin & King due to the professionalism and service I received from Janet.

"Griffin & King have been an absolute pleasure to work with. They have helped us through a tough time in our business life. They made the whole liquidation process a simple step by step process; giving us a checklist of things we needed to provide, then once complete thy handled everything. They were always a phone call away for any concerns or help needed and were very reassuring through the whole process. They have set up an easy payment plan, to transfer assets from business to business. Which helps us pay off outstanding debts. They have done all communication with Courts and Companies House. We have not had to worry about a thing and this has made a stressful time into a relatively calm and simple situation.

"When I realised that the company I was running would soon run out of road and become insolvent I was gripped with fear and became extremely stressed. I contacted Griffin & King and spoke to Janet Peacock. I was very distressed and explained at length the situation and slowly Janet calmed me down and explained the possible and positive ways forward. By the end of the phone call we had formulated an action plan and for the first time in a few weeks I was able to sleep that night. From that point on Griffin & King handled things with courtesy and speed but I will always be particularly grateful to Janet for the moral as well as professional support she gave me at a very difficult time".

"We first approached Tim at Griffin & King when our business was experiencing serious cash flow problems with the view to looking at a CVA, from our first meeting with Tim and his colleagues he put our mind at rest and explained all our options clearly and comprehensively which as a young director of my first business was very important. Following Tim's and our accountants advice we ultimately decided Voluntary Liquidation was the best course of action, something that is a daunting thought, but Tim and his team have taken care of all the various procedures and also ensured our staff get fairly compensated. I can't recommend Griffin & King enough, Tim is a great guy and extremely fair. If your business is going through a tough time I would highly suggest you speak to Griffin & King, even if just for some advice". MJ - 19 March 2018
