About Me

As an insolvency practitioner I handle complex insolvency assignments, asset tracing recovery exercises and corporate intelligence investigations.

A lot of my work is currently assisting large corporates, high net worth families and individuals in disputes across multiple jurisdictions, particularly Russia and the CIS region.

My case work includes/has included being trustee in bankruptcy of Boris Berezovsky (Deceased), Christos Lemos, Murray Richards (Vivendi vs Bloch/Richards) the bankruptcies of Maythem Al Ansari, Shane Filan (the lead singer of Westlife) and Charnesh Kapoor (Natwest Bank vs Kapoor and Tang) and the liquidations of ITV Digital, RV Capital LLP, Global Trader Europe Limited, Mice Group plc and Safe Solutions Accounting Limited (which included the appointment of over 800 companies in one day).
