Hannah is a solicitor within the restructuring and insolvency team based in our Leeds and Huddersfield offices.
She deals with all aspects of insolvency – including contentious and non-contentious matters for insolvency practitioners, companies and individuals.
Work highlights include:
- Negotiating a settlement on behalf of a landlord company who had taken possession of machinery belonging to its liquidated tenant, who also happened to be a connected company. The liquidator had issued proceedings against the landlord company arguing possession of the machinery had been a transaction at an undervalue. Settlement was reached at less than 50% of the original sum claimed by the liquidator.
- Successfully opposing director disqualification proceedings issued by the Secretary of State, resulting in the Secretary of State discontinuing proceedings at trial.
- Advising and acting on behalf of IVA supervisors in relation to debtors failing to comply with their IVA and successfully petitioning for bankruptcy.
In a voluntary capacity, Hannah enjoys raising money for local charities and has most recently taken part in the Leeds Big Sleep raising money for St. Gemma’s Hospice, the Leeds Rhino’s Foundation and St. George’s Crypt.
