I am so fortunate to be able to do the work I love and it challenges me every day. My specialism allows me to experience situations which are varied, complex, pressured and unpredictable and I am there at the coal face along with my clients.

The best experiences have been where in the most distressed of situations, there has been optimism, collaboration, teamwork and a good outcome has been achieved as result.

Acting for a distressed lender on negotiating and implementing a consensual debt restructuring of circa £500m across a 22 corporate borrower group with a managed agreement on the sale of secured assets, such as commercial property, hotels, care homes, pubs, holiday parks and residential, across the UK and Europe. All parties looked to lose out on a formal insolvency, and this was avoided by skilful negotiation with an eye to the commercial realities.

Acting for investors with a distressed portfolio of shopping centre assets; advising on contingency planning and security enhancement, which ended up being bespoke to the centres, but which ultimately helped to maximise performance and thereby improve the position of both parties.

Acting for PricewaterhouseCoopers as Administrators of Manganese Bronze/London Taxis – an exhilarating, complex and broad project which the teams at both the firm and PWC lived and breathed, helping to deliver a sale of the business to Geely through genuine teamwork. It is very rewarding for the team to know that LTI successfully continues to manufacture taxis in Coventry.
