Begbies Traynor has snapped up the corporate recovery division of Leeds-based
firm Bartfields, bringing well-known practitioner Gerald Krasner into its fold.

to Ken Bates.

Joining Begbies as a partner, Krasner also takes with him his team, while
retaining a role as consultant to Bartfields for the foreseeable future.
