Gary has been in the insolvency profession for over 30 years. He qualified as a licensed insolvency practitioner in 1999 and remains an appointment taker through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales. During this time he has been a member of Council at the Association of Business Recovery Professionals and has been an advisor to both shadow and presiding Governments on various corporate-related matters.
Over his career Gary has a proud record of never losing when court intervention was required. He puts this down to being honest with himself and considering the arguments available for both parties involved.
Some of his negotiating achievements include:
• Setting down (what is considered by some as) the clearest guidance for unlawful property dispositions, which HM Revenue & Customs have relied upon in subsequent cases ever since.
• Successfully negotiating the withdrawal of a substantial claim for wrongful trading against a director who had already been disqualified for trading whilst insolvent.
• Achieved a settlement of a professional negligence claim where damages were sought amounting to £1 million under un-tested legal provisions.
• Negotiating settlement of a long-running management dispute, involving several businesses.
In one mediation a member of the claimant’s party stated,
“I can recommend Gary very highly. He did a super and well balanced job on one of our mediation cases recently. He is now on our shortlist for future cases.”
