I’m a legal director in the commercial dispute resolution and restructuring and insolvency teams. My clients value my technical expertise and pragmatic approach to their legal issues. My primary focus is to listen to what my clients want, assess if this is what they actually need and deliver excellent service.

I work in all areas of corporate and personal insolvency. Although much of my work is contentious, I am also regularly involved in the non-contentious transactional side of insolvency when we are retained by insolvency practitioners acting as liquidator or administrator.

Over the last 30+ years, I have developed recognised expertise in director protection, advising directors of companies in financial distress or those that have entered an insolvency process, as well as defending them in all manner of proceedings including disqualification.

Having spent many years acting for the Insolvency Service instructed by the Secretary of State in bringing disqualification proceedings against former directors, I am in the unique position of being able to advise directors who have been targeted for disqualification.

My clients include insolvency practitioners acting as liquidator, administrator or trustee in bankruptcy, company directors and individuals.

I am recognised by The Legal 500 as a specialist in Insolvency.
