CROWE CLARK WHITEHILL has recruited a former insolvency trade body R3 council member as partner.
James Martin will be in charge of the Midland’s arm of CCW’s recovery division.
He was previously at PwC for 19 years, latterly as a director, before he joined Begbies Traynor where he was a partner and set up the Birmingham office, leaving after eight years.
In 2010 he left restructuring to create and work on a buy-in, management buy-out venture capital-backed deal of Stewart Plastics. This deal entailed management both being buying into the company and external individuals buying other managers out.
David Mellor, Crowe Clark Whitehill chief executive, said: “Corporate recovery plays an important role in the integrated solutions that we offer our clients, and I am pleased to welcome James to further strengthen Crowe Clark Whitehill Recovery Solutions.”
