FRP appoints six-strong Glasgow restructuring advisory team



Business advisory firm FRP has appointed a six-strong restructuring advisory team, including partners Michelle Elliot and Stuart Robb, all of whom will be based in Glasgow.

With more than 20 years’ experience, Elliot is a qualified chartered accountant and insolvency practitioner.

She has spent her career advising business owners, lenders, shareholders and other stakeholders on all aspects of corporate restructuring, including independent business reviews, contingency planning, options review and contentious insolvency.

With more than 25 years’ experience, Robb specialises in contentious insolvency and corporate restructuring.

He has worked on formal insolvency appointments across a wide variety of sectors and has strong connections within the local intermediary community.

Together they join FRP with director Ricky O’Kane, senior manager James Dempster, manager Julie Millar, and senior relationship manager Donald Shanks.

The move will establish an on-the-ground presence for FRP in Glasgow, with plans to launch a new office in the city later this year.

Jeremy French, chief operating officer of FRP, said: “The appointment of Michelle, Stuart and the wider team is a clear statement of intent of our commitment to the local market, it strengthens our presence in the central belt of Scotland and enables us to establish a strong presence in Glasgow.”

Elliot said: “Joining FRP enables us to expand and strengthen our restructuring offer while also tapping into the firm’s national network and brand to provide clients with the full suite of advisory services, including debt advisory, forensic services and corporate finance.”

Robb added: “Working with our colleagues in the already well-established Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness offices we have a real ambition to expand the team in Glasgow to help support businesses across Scotland as they navigate the financial difficulties and reset following the challenges over the past year.
