CVR Global is an independent provider of restructuring, insolvency, advisory and forensic services


CVR was formed in 2015 following the management buy out of the business recovery division of Chantrey Vellacott. Covering the whole insolvency spectrum – from discreet rescues of ailing businesses to formal insolvency appointments – CVR brings a fresh, innovative approach to helping troubled businesses and individuals.

Known for our commitment to building strong relationships, we are large enough to supply the full spectrum of services yet small enough to ensure we deliver personalised advice. We have a proven track record in advising stakeholders in businesses facing distress, ranging from owner-managed businesses, listed companies and not-for-profit organisations, in the full range of sectors.


We fully embrace and promote the rescue and turnaround culture, working closely with our forensic accounting and other specialists on both formal and informal assignments. Our aim is to provide lasting practical solutions for troubled businesses and individuals.
