Russell Simpson Director London +44 (0)20 7728 3288

I am a director in our restructuring and debt advisory team, specialising in restructuring and insolvency in both an advisory capacity and as an office holder. I regularly work with creditors, directors and shareholders in respect of mid-market private companies and large listed corporates.

With over 14 years of professional experience, I have worked across a board range of sectors in both domestic and cross-border restructurings. Whilst being sector agnostic, I have detailed assignment experience in the business support services, construction, retail, logistics, manufacturing and TMT sectors.

I have also previously completed an external secondment with the Special Situations team in UK Government Investments. As part of this role I advised ministers and senior civil servants on matters of national interest, including the steel and oil and gas sectors.

Examples of my work include:

  • Review of a FTSE-250 listed facilities management group
  • Financial adviser to a listed support service and construction business
  • Appointed administrator to a freight forwarding and logistics business with multiple European locations
  • Providing an independent restructuring opinion to the board of a listed European mining group
  • Financial adviser to the lenders of a digital marketing agency
  • Advising the pension scheme in the restructuring of a UK department store chain
  • Financial advisers to the lenders of a sponsor backed menswear retailer

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my young family and riding my bike in the Yorkshire Dales.

  • Chartered Accountant
