Booth & Co is an independent firm of Insolvency Practitioners established in 2008 by Phil Booth. We work with financially distressed businesses and individuals across Yorkshire, the North East and the Midlands and help guide all stakeholders through the processes involved. Our aim is always to find the best possible solution for all parties at a reasonable cost. Renowned for our friendly and no-nonsense advice, we offer a free, no obligation meeting to discuss your circumstances and options.
It is without doubt that there is still a stigma attached to the word “liquidation” and the shadow of failure it casts and for many who find themselves facing this due process, it is also a time of vulnerability for all those involved. The team at Booth & Co have perfected the balance required to deal with these cases, blending a mix of professionalism, know-how and the empathy needed to guide the business owner and directors through the process appropriately.

Insolvency Team at Chadwick Lawrence LLP Solicitors, Wakefield
As a single woman who owned a small business in financial difficulty, you looked after me so well and kept me going when I was in a very dark and miserable place. The team at Booth & Co (especially Luke) all gave me hope and more importantly provided guidance and help and someone to trust. You pointed me in the right direction, which was brilliant.”

I have known Phil for over 15 years now and have no difficulty in recommending him to my clients, big and small on both simple and complicated matters. He tells it as it is – straight talking no nonsense which is all anyone can ask for. He has handled the simplest put to bed liquidations for my clients and also the occasional job where we have had to hunker down for the long haul which has resulted in successful recoveries. Without sounding corny, one of the good guys.
Jeremy Rowland, Rowland Law Limited, Wakefield
We have exclusively used Booth & Co for all our clients’ insolvency work for around 6 years and cannot praise Phil in particular enough for his professionalism, knowledge and personal skills when dealing with our clients in what can be very difficult financial and emotional times. From the initial phone call to get Phil involved on a case, I know the client is going to be in safe hands and will receive the right advice for their specific circumstances. Communication is always prompt and clear and the feedback I receive from clients is always “you were right about Phil Booth, I’m glad we had that meeting”. We look forward to working with Phil and the rest of his team well into the future.
Paul Hendley, Cartwright & Co Accountants, Barnsley
We have worked with Phil and his team at Booth & Co for several years and have always found them approachable and professional in everything they do. They are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure our clients get the most appropriate insolvency advice and have never failed to deliver in providing the highest level of customer support. We have recently worked together in a pre-pack exit from administration which safeguarded over 50 jobs and involved complex issues with creditors, bankers, finance companies and HMRC, all of which Phil and his team helped our clients negotiate a way through and achieve an end result our clients were extremely happy with. We would highly recommend Phil and his team and they remain our first point of call when any client has an insolvency issue.
Kevin Hirst, Seaman Herbert & Co Accountants, Barnsley
I have known Phil and Karen for a number of years and, where required, I have sought their advice and assistance on behalf of my clients. They are very professional in their approach but it is their personal touch that I feel is the key. Many people, when faced with difficult situations, need someone who is approachable, explains things in layman’s terms and walks them through each stage. Phil, Karen and the team excel in this department and I would highly recommend their services should anyone find themselves in such situations.
