Aneesh specialises in restructuring with core transactional skills within insolvency, banking and corporate. He has developed skills which have become highly relevant in a number of sectors, including the challenging construction and retail sectors. Aneesh is experienced acting both creditor-side, and also sitting within the board room, during turnaround processes.

His clients include financial institutions, sureties, office holders and directors across the UK and internationally on transactional projects in distressed or restructuring scenarios. In particular, Aneesh has strong relationships with various clearing banks and financiers, something which has been further enhanced through an extended secondment at a distressed arm of a banking client. Aneesh also works closely with high-level participants in the surety market and has taken the lead on a number of significant assignments within that arena.
