Expertise

Jenna is a national and cross discipline restructuring associate with expertise in transactional and contentious corporate insolvency work and in personal insolvency matters. Jenna has developed a particular expertise in dealing with complex insolvency litigation cases. 

Jenna is regularly instructed by Insolvency Practitioners, creditors and directors to offer advice and assistance with a range of matters including pursuing and defending claims under the Insolvency Act 1986 (such as misfeasance, transactions at undervalue, preference) and assisting with the recovery of company assets.

Jenna has played a key role in the successful reported cases that the team have been instructed on in the High Court and Supreme Court.
