Restructuring and Insolvency expert joins HCR Hewitsons team in Cambridge

10th July 2023

Frank Brumby has joined HCR Hewitsons as a Partner in the Restructuring and Insolvency (R&I) Team. Frank will be based in the firm’s Cambridge office.

Frank is a well-known and well-respected figure in the R&I community, specifically in East Anglia – he specialises in contentious and non-contentious insolvency work for corporates and individuals, including bank recovery. He represents insolvency practitioners, creditors, lenders, directors, partners and private individuals.

Commenting on his appointment, Frank said, “The firm’s reputation for R&I is renowned – Sam and his team are true experts and I’m delighted to be joining them to further enhance the support they offer clients at, what can be considered, quite a distressing and stressful time. The way in which the team supports businesses and individuals is completely aligned to my values and practice.”

Sam Payne, Head of R&I said, “Frank’s reputation precedes him – we are absolutely delighted to have him on board and there is no doubt his expert knowledge, his methodology for resolving matters with the utmost care and consideration, and his valued industry connections will absolutely benefit our clients from the outset. Our team, and the firm is growing and we’re so pleased to have Frank with us on a very exciting point of that journey.”

Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 consistently rank Frank as a leading individual for the last 20 years, and peers remark that he is ‘excellent at providing solutions under pressure.’

Frank’s appointment comes hot-on-the-heels of Monica Kapur who joined the R&I team as a Partner in London and Birmingham at the end of March. New Partner, Rebecca Quinn joined the Commercial team in Cambridge, in April to further bolster the offering of HCR Hewitsons regionally.
