Clarke Willmott LLP

Work Department

Restructuring and Insolvency

Position

Martin is a Partner in the Restructuring and Insolvency team and he specialises in contentious insolvency.


South West: Finance

Insolvency and corporate recovery

Within: Insolvency and corporate recovery

Clarke Willmott LLP is ‘a major player in regional insolvency litigation’. The practice has a particularly strong following among government bodies; it is the sole national adviser to The Insolvency Service for Insolvency Act, and is regularly involved in disputes in which HMRC is the principal creditor. Department head Martin Askew specialises in insolvency and fraud litigation and is ‘the driving force in the team’. Of note, Askew is engaged by a company liquidator in relation to a large-scale fraud perpetrated by directors of the insolvent company. On the non-contentious side, Ken MacLennan is advising a company and, once appointed, its administrators/liquidators, in relation to the strategic management of its pre- and post-insolvency actions. MacLennan was also instructed by the joint trustees in a deceased individual’s bankruptcy. Associate Lisa Cooke is also recommended.
