The vision to see beyond, the tenacity to preserve and enhance value

We will engage often at short notice, with the skills, tenacity and vision to deliver results that preserve and enhance value


Cork Gully has been the leading name in restructuring over the last 100 years. Built on solid heritage, we are a specialist advisory firm bringing clarity to complex restructuring and special situations. We demonstrate our commitment to our clients through the delivery of innovative solutions to achieve the best possible outcome in often challenging circumstances. We always put the client first and ensure that we adopt the most effective strategies that tackle core business and financial issues. Our partners define the issues and objectives so that even the most complex strategies can be implemented successfully.


In 1906 WH Cork established WH Cork & Co as a practice largely focused on helping underperforming businesses, which, in the early part of the last century, were being forced out of business. In 1935, WH Cork formed a partnership with his son Kenneth and Harry Gully, creating Cork Gully. After WH Cork’s death and a period of war service, his sons, Sir Kenneth and Norman Cork focused on building the business to become the leading name in the field of restructuring and insolvency. In 1980 the firm merged with Cooper & Lybrand, latterly becoming PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). In 2010 Cork Gully was bought out of PwC by the current management.
