The Interventionists do not attempt to replace the legal fraternity. We are not qualified to do so. However, from experience we know that we can do a lot of preparatory work before even needing or having to engage with a legal professional. Our role is to help you avoid even needing one, but we are well aware of the pitfalls and our own limitations and so we can provide sufficient advice to prevent this. Rest assured that when we do pick up that one is required (possibly due to the complexity of a legal issue, or the advanced state of the problem) we will be sure to advise you to do so. But until then there is a lot we can do to help you avoid some serious legal fees.


Business intervention methods, target the area of weakness in your company. Whether the company is in a downward spiral and needs to be saved, or already successful and trying to reach the next level, understanding how to implement appropriate business intervention strategies can help make the effort successful. We do our work in any area of your business where our help is most needed and we can have a measurable and immediate impact.

An outsider is often better placed to cut through the sometimes emotional implications and can take a more objective view on alternatives available. Ultimately we would never take the final decision on how to proceed. That remains strictly within your domain. But when you feel you need help, and cannot afford the sometimes convoluted and theoretical processes (death by paper and PowerPoint!) of traditional advisors, such as business rescue practitioners, consultants, auditors, lawyers etc. our Interventionists team can assist and get to the answers much quicker and cheaper than anybody else can.

Our services and expertise are transportable across most industry segments, but we have pertinent people on the team with backgrounds in financial services, IT, telecommunications, retail, manufacturing, property, etc. Don’t be shy asking – we will honestly tell you early on if we are unable to help you.

Our network of available skills is wide and flexible with literally a combined hundreds of years’ experience in executive and non-executive capacities and roles across almost all industries you can imagine. And the academic backgrounds are equally impressive with several diplomas, degrees and even a few PHD’s! However, The Interventionists do not employ these people on a permanent basis. That would be unaffordable. That is why we refer to our “network of resources”. We call on this network for each challenge we are presented with, so that The Interventionists can identify the correct indivuals or company, on a case by case basis, to come and assist with the task at hand. Sometimes that may be a single person, sometimes a combination of several. The Interventionists will select and advise and introduce, but ultimately contract and ensure the collective delivers on our promise to you and the desired objectives. It is this virtual operating model through contracted resources for specific tasks that makes us so compellingly competent, always able to deliver and, importantly for you the customer, remain affordable.
