Commenting on his promotion, he said: “2020 has been a busy year for the restructuring team, supporting hundreds of clients across a range of sectors.

Elsewhere, Alan Flower and Geoff Jacobs have been appointed associate partners in deal advisory, based in the firm’s Glasgow office, joined by new associate partner in audit, Colin Williamson.
In Edinburgh, Hannah Walsh becomes director in the audit team, alongside Glasgow-based audit directors, Bryan Shepka, David Roberts and Deborah Ramsay. James Healy becomes director in the firm’s tax team, also based in Glasgow.
