What can Helen do for you?
Helen specialises in insolvency and restructuring. She advises clients impacted by the financial distress of companies and individuals. Her clients include insolvency practitioners, boards of directors, individuals and creditors.
Helen also advises government bodies on special administration regimes and the use of formal insolvency procedures to help them achieve their public policy aims.
Supporting your ambitions
Helen has recently assisted a client to investigate and bring claims against directors of an insolvent company. The subsequent court claim resulted in payment in full to all of the creditors of the insolvent company. The creditors had not expected to receive any payment, so this was a very satisfying outcome for everyone concerned.
Disposals of insolvent businesses require particular care and an efficient turnaround, to protect jobs and goodwill. Helen has advised on many such transactions on behalf of the administrators or on behalf of buyers, helping to achieve business rescue.
What do others say?
One of Helen's clients describes her as "very on the ball, always completely organised, strong on the law and very commercial. She is always three steps ahead."
What else should you know?
Helen travels widely whenever time allows. She is particularly fond of Italy, but her personal ambition is to visit all of the continents eventually.
Helen has been involved with Mills & Reeve LLP's diversity projects and is a keen advocate of diversity in the workplace.
She is also a member of the firm's China Desk project.
