Sian specialises in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious corporate and personal insolvency whether it is acting for the officeholder, director, bankrupt, lender, creditor or other stakeholder in the insolvent estate.

Sian and Frank Brumby work together and are recognised by clients as a formidable team on insolvency claims and transactional work, meeting very short timescales, addressing whatever issues are thrown at them, and ultimately delivering great results for their clients.

Sian’s expertise includes advising Oyez Forms on the redrafting of all the insolvency forms following the coming into force of the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016. Oyez Forms are used by a significant part of the legal industry. Sian is also the main point of contact for some of Isadore Goldman’s lender clients.
