Glen is a Partner in our Restructuring & Insolvency team. He qualified in 2003 and became a partner in the business in 2007.
Glen advises debtors, creditors, insolvency practitioners, investors in distressed assets, and a variety of other stakeholders, on both contentious and non-contentious matters, at all stages of the decline and recovery curves. This includes advising on directors' duties on insolvency, restructuring plans, security package enhancements and enforcement, distressed asset sales and acquisitions, loan-to-own strategies, insolvency investigations, solvent reconstructions, and mitigation of insolvency risk in transactions.
During his career, Glen has structured and implemented many business rescues, including UK Coal (a restructuring which saved over 2,000 skilled jobs), Mint Equities (a prominent stockbroking business, acquired by BGC Partners) and Teathers (the stockbroking arm of Landsbanki, acquired by Redmayne Bentley).
Glen has also led many major international and cross-border mandates, involving the use of the European Insolvency Regulation, the UNCITRAL model law on insolvency and other cross-border tools. He often helps overseas clients to resolve UK and cross-border conflict of law issues. Cases include Lowcosttravelgroup, Stanford International Bank, Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander, Lehman Brothers, the Niton Fund, Eurodis and Crisscross/Dynegy.
Glen covers all sectors. Currently, he is very active in heavy industry, retail, projects, financial services and pensions.
