I have over 25 years of experience in the recovery and reorganisation space. I lead our British Virgin Islands (BVI) business and take insolvency appointments in the BVI. Our practice focuses on complex cross border insolvencies, dispute resolution and forensic accountancy.

I started my career in London moving to Asia in the late 1990’s. Following a couple of years in Hong Kong and my return to the UK, I moved into corporate finance before returning to restructuring work where I operated as an insolvency practitioner and worked in restructuring, advisory and pensions advisory.

In 2014 I moved to Hong Kong and launched our restructuring team. Over the next seven years I was involved in some of the largest cross border restructuring cases including China Fishery, Noble Group, China Huishan Diary Holding including offshore cases in Cayman, Bermuda and BVi.
