Ian joined FRP in 2010 and is a Partner in the Restructuring Advisory team at our Brighton office. He provides advice to lenders and other stakeholders, and has specific expertise in dealing with owner-managers of SMEs and guiding them through periods of financial distress.
Ian has dealt with most business sectors over the years, in particular the retail, light industrial, construction and charity sectors. A significant amount of his work involves building long-term working relationships with owners over several months or even years, and exploring the various options available, ranging from full turnaround to simply achieving a softer ending.
His previous assignments have included advising on the orderly wind down of a Sussex charity providing education and training to vulnerable groups, which involved the transfer of a number of part-completed projects to similar charitable providers, and the pre-pack administration sale of a Sussex-based printing company, saving all jobs.
