Lee Causer joins Moore Stephens’ insolvency team

LEE CAUSER has joined the restructuring and insolvency team at Top 10 accounting firm Moore Stephens’ Birmingham office as a partner.

He joins Moore Stephens from AlixPartners, where he was a director. He had originally joined Kroll (which subsequently became Zolfo Cooper in November 2008 and was then acquired by AlixPartners in February 2015) in August 2006, prior to which Causer worked at Ernst & Young for four years where he qualified as an accountant.

Causer has over 19 years’ experience of working in corporate restructuring in the Midlands, particularly in the leisure, healthcare, sport and real estate and construction sectors.

In 2008-09 he undertook a secondment at Halifax Bank of Scotland at the height of the financial crisis, where he worked in the bank’s high risk team dealing with distressed customers whose loans were at risk of default.

Jeremy Willmont, head of restructuring & insolvency at Moore Stephens, said: “We are delighted to welcome Lee to Moore Stephens. He brings many years of high-level experience to the team and has a detailed understanding of how lenders approach restructuring.

“Strengthening the restructuring and insolvency practice at our Birmingham office is a key part of our national growth strategy.”
