BAKER TILLY has recruited the former president of insolvency trade body R3 Steven Law as a partner in its restructuring division.
Law (pictured) was previously R3 president in 2010 and prior to that spent 16 years at Grant Thornton, latterly as partner. He joins Baker Tilly from accountancy firm Ensors where he spent more than 15 years developing the firm’s business recovery and insolvency division.
At the end of last year Baker Tilly lost high profile practitioner David Hudson. He had worked on corporate collapses such as Buddha Bar and Southampton Leisure, he left the firm to set up a fund which will invest in businesses.
Law said: “My principal focus at Baker Tilly will be to look to rescue ailing businesses in East Anglia. At the heart of our work is helping businesses survive. I look forward to developing our offering in the region by making the most of the expertise available across the firm nationally and indeed across the Baker Tilly International network, where appropriate, to help businesses in the region.”
R3 members make up about 97% of insolvency practitioners in the UK.
