Leading Corporate Recovery Firm announces new recruits to cover Midlands area

Leading restructuring and insolvency firm, Moorfields Corporate Recovery, has announced that Neil Hickling and Claire Morris will be joining them. Neil and Claire will be focused on supporting professionals in the Midlands area.

Neil will be working with Moorfields after 16 years with Smith and Williamson as partner leading their Worcester Office. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience having advised financially distressed companies and individuals for over 30 years. 

Joining Neil is senior manager Claire Morris also previously at Smith and Williamson’s Worcester office. Insolvency specialist Claire has serviced the Midlands area alongside Neil for 13 years and has significant expertise in corporate insolvency and specifically personal insolvency.

Commenting on his appointment, Neil Hickling said: “ I am looking forward to working with Moorfields and supporting their continued expansion. The Midlands was one of the worst areas hit by the recession and suffered some of the highest unemployment rates. Whilst the region is making a recovery businesses will need to plan carefully for future growth to ensure they continue to survive and compete.  

Commenting on the appointment, Phil Smith said “ We are delighted to welcome both Neil and Claire to the team they will significantly strengthen our service offering outside London and allow us to provide an enhanced service to intermediaries.”

Commenting on the appointment, Simon Thomas said “Both Neil and Claire are well recognised in the region and have strong relationships with a range of professionals so are well placed to support intermediaries and their clients.”
