A bit about me

I act for lenders, companies, directors and insolvency practitioners (administrators and liquidators), trying to make sure businesses survive, keep job losses to a minimum and ensure creditors get as much money back as possible.  As a member of the Institute For Turnaround (IFT) I uphold their principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, due skill and courtesy. So, if you need someone to help you turn your business situation around, I’m here to help.

When I take on a case, I try and put myself in my clients’ shoes and understand what represents a successful outcome – then, I try and better it. I’m always available for a chat, and often work around the clock to get the best results. From day to day, I work with and for lenders and accountants, from local firms to the Big 4.

Outside of work, I’m passionate about sports, including cricket, rugby, tennis, squash, skiing and football, and of course my wife and three children.

If I’m out of the office, please call Charlene Rayner on 03301 076 552.

Want to know more?

As soon as you start to run into issues, seek advice. The sooner you see a professional, the better the outcome will be.

Be proactive – we’ll help you throughout the process, but it’ll be much easier if you let us know about all key developments as and when they happen.

Continually monitor the situation and don’t let yourself get left behind.

You must be busy! Will you have time to handle my case?

We’re often handling a good number of cases, but our experienced team are always on hand to listen to your problem and provide an initial consultation. Give us a call to see how we can help.

Am I getting the right advice in time?

We will provide you with really good and prompt advice which is also cost effective.  Whether you have come to us at the earliest opportunity or late in the day we will work tirelessly to put you in the best possible position.  Give us a call to see how we can help.
