Insolvency in England
The Oriel, Sydenham Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 3SR
At Moore Barlow, we focus on helping entrepreneurs and leaders of businesses and organisations, and private individuals and families through the opportunities, the challenges, and the sometimes life-altering circumstances that may come your way.
For us, it is all about starting a conversation and building a relationship between people who care about the outcome, rather than just between a ‘firm’ and a ‘client’. By understanding what’s at stake for you, be that as a business, organisation or as an individual, we can apply a personalised approach and the highest standards of care, so you get the best outcome for your specific needs.
In the commercial world, we help entrepreneurial businesses thrive in the long-term, and we also support individuals and families protect and transfer their wealth. Your immediate need is part of a complex whole. So we always assess the full context, making sure that we understand everything that’s going on in your life. Only by doing this can we make sure the solution fits the big picture and helps you achieve your long-term goals.
We don’t simply do the job in a vacuum, in the same way each time. Instead, we think about the best way for each individual person we’re advising. Often, you will need advice from different people in our firm who bring their expertise and experience to bear. Our firm is the right size to make this happen: we all know each other and work with each other all the time, so everything is coordinated and efficiently run. You’ll get a seamless team working on your behalf.
We know that your plans and aspirations are long-term. So our advice always takes this into account. We also build teams who work together so you will get to know us over time. You can only get the best advice within a long-term relationship and this is very much our bread and butter.
At Moore Barlow we are like you. We have our own dynamic growth business to run, and we too have families to support. This, combined with years of experience, means we completely ‘get’ what you need from advisors like us.
We are also proud of our open and communicative culture, which means you always know what’s going on and where you are in the process.Show more +

- Restructuring and reorganisation
I am an experienced solicitor specialising in all aspects of insolvency and restructuring. I also hold a non-appointment-taking insolvency licence.
I work with insolvency practitioners, directors, individuals, lenders, landlords, trade creditors, and other stakeholders, and have experience of a broad range of corporate and personal insolvency procedures, and rescue and restructuring strategies. I also work with companies and shareholders on solvent liquidations and tax efficient exit-planning.
I love building strong relationships with clients; working collaboratively with them to understand what it is important to them, both commercially and personally, and helping them achieve their objectives.
In Chambers & Partners I am ranked as a “Leading Individual” and in Legal 500 as a “Next Generation Lawyer”. I have been independently recognised for my technical acumen, pragmatism, ability to achieve results, and strong client and interpersonal skills.
Delivering presentations and training to the insolvency profession is something I do frequently, (for example at R3 and SESCA conferences, and in-house to insolvency practitioner clients and their teams).
In my spare time I can usually be found enjoying a dip in the sea, on my allotment, or cooking for friends.
