I also act for UK and international insolvency practitioners in investigation and asset tracing work, specialising in cross-border cases. I frequently advise stakeholders on the recovery of assets throughout the world and have considerable experience of the investigatory powers of international insolvency processes.

I have a particular specialism in the distressed financial services sector having recently acted on the special administration of an investment bank.

I have a wealth of international experience most recently advising the directors of an international engineering specialist solutions provider in relation to the restructuring of circa £110m bank debt. The assignment included the preparation and delivery of an effective and viable restructuring plan to the bank (in Bahrain).

My other recent experience includes:

  • Managing the Special Administration of Hume Capital Securities PLC which resulted in a very favourable reported Judgment and a successful distribution of client monies and client assets.
  • Acting for the administrators (and subsequently supervisors) of an AIM listed company with a successful exit via CVA.
  • Acting for a private equity house in relation to the purchase of a distressed global business across multiple jurisdictions.
