“Acting for both Insolvency Practitioners and directors in highly confidential and distressed situations I bring a straight forward approach focused on practical advice and commercial realities.

“Ultimately success comes from getting under the skin of a situation quickly and understanding exactly what my client really wants both now and in the longer term. Whether working with the leading Insolvency Practitioners or directors in difficult circumstances in excess of 20 years of experience has taught me that recognising a problem or a desired outcome early is the best approach. However life is not always perfect and whenever the issue arises I believe a sharp mind and pragmatic approach underpinned by a broad range of professional connections will lead to a successful outcome. I have worked on a number of complex high profile brand insolvencies including many sports clubs. I have also worked on behalf of a number of high profile bankrupts and directors in difficult circumstances, both before and after insolvency has occurred.

“As Joint Managing Partner I work with the management board to help further develop our business and client relationships. I am totally committed to understanding how our clients would like to use us and how we as lawyers can provide more to our clients than just legal answers. I am delighted at the success that this ethos has brought to Clarion and its clients and am committed to extending that further.
