Amaechi Nsofor

Partner, Head of Africa Business Group

I am a seasoned restructuring and insolvency practitioner with considerable experience in helping financial stakeholders protect and maximise value. My specialisms are providing a soft landing for distressed entities and asset recovery on behalf of claimants.

For more than 20 years, I've advised lenders and companies on multiple challenging and high-profile projects including JJB Sports and Aston Martin. I have also advised governments and local law enforcement, particularly in Sub Saharan Africa. My clients tell me that my skills are most suited to challenging situations that require innovative solutions.

I am at the forefront of the drive to share best practice and develop restructuring, insolvency, and asset recovery techniques in Africa. I work within the Insol Group as part of the 10 year program to enhance insolvency frameworks in Africa.

My team has pioneered the use of insolvency powers to facilitate litigation, trade and recover misappropriated assets for the benefit of claimants. I continue to work exclusively on African projects, coordinating the delivery of a broad range of services to companies, lenders, government, law enforcement and financial stakeholders.

Outside work, I watch a lot of sport and enjoy visiting new countries and learning about different cultures. I also sit on the board of the UK Institute of Directors.
