About the TRI Awards

Formerly known as the Insolvency & Rescue (I&R) Awards, the renamed and re-calibrated TRI Awards scheme has been refreshed with several new categories to reflect the critical work now prevalent across the profession – particularly in turnaround and restructuring.

The award has grown year on year, and the judging panel received more entries than ever before for this year’s awards. In total there are 162 finalists from over 100 individual companies across all the categories after the shortlisting process.

There are many categories included, recognising senior professionals leading the way in creditor engagement, as well as lawyers, insolvency teams, invoice finance firms, training providers and technology suppliers.
