(Formerly known as Horwath Corporate Advisory Services Ltd.)



Wardell & Associates Ltd. ( “W & A” ) is a consultant firm specializing in Corporate Governance Advisory, Forensic Accounting and Insolvency Services. The founder of W & A, Mr. Jim Wardell is a renowned accountant in Hong Kong and is described as one of the first professional accountants who was responsible for the birth of a new profession (insolvency) in Hong Kong. He arrived in Hong Kong in 1983 and had been a partner of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu ("Deloittes") for most of the '90s. Through his restructuring and advisory work, Mr. Wardell also saw the need for Hong Kong companies to develop their own Corporate Governance structure. He was therefore heavily involved in assisting the Hong Kong Institute of Directors ("HKIoD") and the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants in establishing the Corporate Governance framework for companies in Hong Kong. He is one of the founding members of the HKIoD. Recently Mr. Wardell has been approached by the ICAC in Hong Kong who has appointed him as the Chairman of the Organizing Committee for Director's Ethic/Ethic Centre.

W & A has built up a specialized team to provide a full range of Corporate Finance Advisory Services including Corporate Governance Advice, Due Diligence, Valuations, Turnaround and Insolvency. Our subsidiary firm, CCIF Corporate Advisory Services Ltd is one of the firms approved by the Hong Kong Official Receiver’s Office to undertake Court winding up assignments with substantial assets.

The senior team are experienced leaders and decision makers with experience in a wide range of sizes, types and structures in numerous jurisdictions and sectors. We can therefore offer a full range of advisory services to assist clients in maximizing value in their businesses, handling crises and turnaround strategies, as well as helping directors, creditors, shareholders and lenders achieve workable solutions.
