A bit about me

I help sort out problems for businesses in trouble, finding a solution as quickly and cost-effectively as I can.

Although I mostly work with care homes, I’ve supported businesses of all kinds to resolve their issues. Once I understand what you need, I’ll do all I can to achieve it, and I’m accessible at all times to help put your mind at ease.

I put best practice at the heart of everything I do through my professional memberships, which include being a Fellow of the Association of Business Recovery Professionals, and part of the Insolvency Lawyers Association, the Law Society’s Dispute Resolution Sector and Institute of Credit Management. I’m also a Fellow of the International Bar Association.

Want to know more?

You can rest assured that we’re on your case, and we’ll come back to you with the solution as soon as we can.

Listen to us as much as we listen to you, and be sure to take our advice on board.

Don’t be afraid to tell us what’s really worrying you – the more information we have, the more we can help.

How long will this take?

It depends what you want to achieve, and the complexity of your situation – we will provide you with time frames once we understand the scope of the work.

How much will this cost?

Once we understand how much is involved, we will be able to give you an accurate fee estimate, and we’ll agree this with you before we proceed.
