She advises insolvency practitioners and other corporate and individual clients on all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency law, providing advisory, transactional and contentious advice.

On the contentious side, she also has significant experience dealing with contentious matters, including antecedent recovery actions in both personal and corporate insolvencies. Experience: acting for the joint administrators of Allders (Croydon) Limited, a landmark development store, a trading administration, in relation to transactional and advisory matters which included employment, property, contract, supplier and procedural issues, and specifically complex issues relating to the rights of unsecured creditors to propose amendments to the administrators’ proposals where there was no likelihood of a dividend being paid to them; acting for the joint administrators of Power Plate International Limited, a well-known international health and exercise equipment manufacturer and retailer, in its administration and in the subsequent sale of its UK business and assets to a Delaware-based buyer; acting for Grant Thornton as the joint administrators of a hotel business in Durham, resulting in a solvent exit from administration with payment in full to all creditors.

Charles Russell Speechlys LLP’s two-partner team has a strong reputation among IPs (Deloitte, Ernst & Young) and business advisory firms (FRP Advisory, Duff & Phelps) and is consequently regularly involved in a range of significant contentious and non-contentious restructuring and insolvency matters. Simon Ridpath recently acted for the joint administrators on the sale of the business and assets of Peyton & Byrne to French company Sodexo following the loss of contracts including Kew Gardens and the British Library. A ‘great man to have in a crisis’, Ridpath is also noted for his contentious expertise, where he ‘combines great legal knowledge, a clear view of the parties’ positions and a pragmatic approach’.
