Davis Coffer Lyons

Leisure Recovery

In 2008, The Coffer Group launched the leisure sector’s first dedicated recovery team in response to increasing demand for restructuring advice.

The specialist team which forms part of Davis Coffer Lyons, provides both consultancy and brokerage services and advises on corporate turnaround, restructuring, pre-packs and administration situations.

With experience of leisure recovery situations spanning four recessions, the team is able to help companies, banks and insolvency experts navigate the very specialist leisure sector, avoiding the guesswork general practice agents provide.

Headed by director Trevor Watson, the team works nationwide and specialises on all aspects of the leisure property market, from health and fitness, bingo halls and hotels to nightclubs, pubs, bars and restaurants.

The specialist team encompasses experts from across the group incorporating agency, pub agency, corporate and hotels divisions.


We advise:

  1. Landlords – are you exposed to a tenant under pressure?
  2. Banks – formal valuations and sales etc.
  3. Operators – we can help re-structure

and can source:

  1. Purchasers of distressed debt
  2. Management teams – for all leisure sectors
  3. Short term management companies

The team is equally adept to work alongside other professionals and advisors and we have a large network of partners we have worked with in recent years.

The Group has consistently offered all involved in restructuring a best-in-class service, whether they be bank, operator, landlord or insolvency practitioner.

Corporate situations are handled through Coffer Corporate Leisure and hotels through Coffer Hotels.
