Leonard Curtis joins forces with Irish firm

LEONARD CURTIS has announced a joint venture with Irish accountancy firm Hughes Blake in response to growing demand for cross-border restructuring and insolvency work.

Hughes Blake is based out of about 13 offices across Ireland and the UK, with Leonard Curtis having 10 offices and about 200 staff in the UK.

The joint entity will be called Leonard Curtis Hughes Blake and will have a combined workforce of around 250 staff.

Michael Healy, (pictured) director, Leonard Curtis business solutions group, said: “Facilitating access to the breadth and depth of our experience through this joint venture enables us to offer a multi-disciplinary team of restructuring and insolvency experts equipped to assess, analyse and resolve complex financial situations in either, or both, Ireland and the UK.

“With a significant geographical footprint in both jurisdictions, LCHB has the potential to become a major competitive force providing workable solutions which successfully navigate the many practical pitfalls that can become apparent in an insolvency case, while maximising recoveries for all stakeholders.”
