Expertise

Jenna has particular expertise in dealing with cases which feature a substantial civil financial fraud, asset stripping or tax evasion which has led to a corporate insolvency.

Jenna is regularly instructed by insolvency practitioners, turnaround professionals, local authorities, investors, creditors and directors to offer advice and assistance with a range of matters including investigating and pursuing claims under the Insolvency Act 1986 (such as misfeasance, transactions at undervalue, preference) and assisting with the recovery of company assets that may have been placed out of the jurisdiction. Jenna is also regularly instructed to advise on and pursue claims in professional negligence and breach of trust and also advises directors in respect of their duties and liabilities.

Whilst the majority of Jenna’s work stems from corporate insolvencies, she also advises in relation to personal insolvency matters, often acting for trustees in bankruptcy. 

Jenna is a member of the Turnaround Management Association NextGen Manchester Committee.
