Local knowledge to support the North East business community

February 12, 2021

“As a firm we aim to marry the technical expertise available in all of our offices with deep local knowledge by recruiting those who truly know their locality.  It has taken us a significant time to find the right person to lead the firm’s operations in Newcastle upon Tyne, and I look forward to the future with confidence.”

Cash flow challenges, Opus support, delivered with care

June 10, 2020

“At the point we called Opus in, we had severe cash flow challenges. We had been fire fighting for some time, but never quite managing to get back on track. The support Opus provided, across their divisions, was phenomenal. Opus is different from what I expected from an IP practice – they care. Whilst making sure we comply with all legal aspects; they have been doing everything they can to help my business to recover. I highly recommend Opus”

Helpful, supportive and clear advice about options

June 10, 2020

“We approached Steve Parker of Opus when our business, which was in the hospitality sector, began to get into difficulties. Steve was helpful and supportive and gave clear and timely advice regarding our options. Resultantly the company was placed into Administration which was handled by Steve and his team in a fair and very professional manner. As a consequence we were able to emerge with a much slimmed down business which has flourished over a number of years allowing us to build up considerable reserves sufficient to see us through any future period of uncertainty”

Restructuring guidance with a clear client understanding

June 9, 2020

“Our firm has worked with Opus for many years and with one of the partners in particular, Jo Rolls. I have attended a number of meetings with Jo when our clients have needed guidance on restructuring their business at a time when they have been facing financial challenges.  Jo has always demonstrated a clear understanding of the clients’ needs from the outset. Her attention to details and diligent advice have proved invaluable to the business at a time when the directors needed it most. I would have no hesitation in recommending Opus to anyone wishing to use their services”

Combining professionalism with a personal approach

June 9, 2020

“Jo and her team go beyond what is required.  She combines professionalism with a personable approach, which is so vital when often dealing with delicate matters, meaning she is a pleasure to work with.”
