An outstanding member of Clarion’s corporate recovery and insolvency team, Helen deals with all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency for clients in Leeds, Yorkshire and across the North of England, having a considerable amount of experience and expertise in both contentious and non-contentious matters.
“Regardless of which party I am acting for, I understand that when a business or individual encounters financial problems it can be a very difficult and stressful time. Whether you are the one experiencing financial distress, are owed monies or have an interest in the business or assets of a distressed third party.
“I work quickly to obtain the facts, ascertain the issues and provide reassurance and advice on the possible options for my clients to minimise any damage or loss and maximise any recoveries. I work very closely with a number of insolvency practitioners, advising in relation to their statutory duties on both personal and corporate insolvencies and assisting in maximising asset realisations, whether through assisting in the sale of businesses and assets or in bringing a variety of claims, including claims in contract, tort, antecedent transaction claims and other forms of litigation.
“I have particularly strong technical abilities and am renowned for my ability to apply the relevant legal principles to any particular issue in order to achieve my client’s objectives. Together with other members of the Clarion team I have successfully handled and assisted in a number of high profile and complex cases.”
