Lock-up review to implement procedures to collect cash at a quicker rate

Armstrong Watson's lock-up review will identify where procedures and practice can be improved to release cash that is locked within your firm. We will make detailed suggestions, department by department, on specific improvements that need to be made to improve cashflow and profitability.

Our lock-up review is usually undertaken in conjunction with an integrated three year forecast which demonstrates what the effect of the review recommendations, once implemented, could have on both the cashflow and profitability of the firm or department.

Contact our Legal Sector Partner, Andy Poole, on 07828 857830 or andy.poole@armstrongwatson.co.uk to discuss how we can help you.
