I regularly advise clearing banks, building societies, asset-based lenders, insolvency practitioners, receivers, owner-managed businesses and creditors on all aspects of insolvency and security. My areas of expertise include restructuring, administration, liquidation, CVA (company voluntary arrangements), fixed charge receiverships, directors’ duties, enforcement of security, asset realisation and debt advice.
As I am based in Birmingham I spend a lot of my time at some great golf courses. However, when not on the greens (more often the rough), a large part of my work involves selling and acquiring distressed businesses and I know how best to use both formal insolvency process and also consensual restructuring options to achieve the best outcome for all stakeholders. I have particular expertise in and enjoy dealing with complex real estate-related insolvency matters and cross-jurisdictional issues is something which I have a real interest in.
I see real value in getting involved with businesses before insolvency hits as I can then call on my significant experience and expertise to offer a number of options to achieve the client’s goals.
