HCR Law Events

A bit about me

Insolvency and restructuring touches upon so many different areas of law and affects all sectors; I love the fact that no two days are the same. I focus on giving my clients, who are mostly insolvency practitioners, honest and pragmatic advice so that they make commercial decisions based on a realistic assessment.

Outside work, I enjoy sailing, shooting and being outside – on the other hand, I have a list of restaurants where I want to eat; I’m ticking those off!

Want to know more?

Remain commercial and pragmatic when making decisions.

Always seek advice early on – this will reduce costs in the long run and allow for a quicker resolution.

Provide as much information to your legal adviser as possible, even if you think it is insignificant.

How much will litigation cost?

This depends on how far through the process the matter goes. In any event, I will provide you with a costs estimate from the start which will be updated throughout.

How long will it take to get a hearing date?

This entirely depends on which court is involved and how much capacity that court has to deal with the hearing. Some courts can take far longer than others, especially central London courts.
