Thanks to her appetite for all aspects of contentious and non-contentions insolvency work, Kelly has worked with all the major UK clearing banks, insolvency practitioners, LPA Receivers and corporate entities. This she has done both regionally and nationally, and on a wide range of insolvency and restructuring issues, including a secondment to The Royal Bank of Scotland PLC’s Global Restructuring Group.
This experience has helped her gain particular expertise in non-contentious advisory and transactional work, such as advising lenders on the validity and enforceability of their security, acting on numerous pre-pack administrations, and advising directors on their duties in a distressed/insolvent business. In addition, she has also advised creditors and landlords in connection with their rights and remedies for the protection of assets and recovery of monies due to them, both pre- and post-insolvency.
Kelly’s other appetite is for food, all food – whether it’s cooking, eating out, or watching cookery programmes, but especially when it’s shared with friends and family. If she had to choose, Kelly says that ‘Come Dine with Me’ is probably her favourite cookery show, with the key ingredient being Dave Lamb’s narration.
