FRP acquires Abbott Fielding

We are pleased to announce the acquisition of the business and assets of Abbott Fielding Limited, a business recovery firm that operates across the South East of England.

Headquartered in Kent, Abbott Fielding is led by founder Nedim (Ned) Ailyan, who will join our Restructuring Advisory team as a Partner alongside his 10-strong team, which includes eight fee earners.
