Director, Financial Services Restructuring

Russell Simpson

I am a director in our UK restructuring team, specialising in restructuring and insolvency in both an advisory capacity and as a qualified insolvency practitioner. I regularly work with creditors, directors and shareholders in respect of large listed corporates and mid-market private companies, with a particular focus on the financial services sector.

With over 16 years of professional restructuring and insolvency experience, I have worked across a board range of sectors in both domestic and cross-border restructurings. I have recent assignment experience in the financial services, 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:

  • Administration of Greensill Capital (UK) Limited
  • Administrator of Earnd (UK) Limited
  • Review of a FTSE-250 listed facilities management group
  • Financial adviser to a listed support service and construction business
  • 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.
