I am extremely proud of our achievements at Smith Cooper and will continue to lead our dedicated Business Recovery and Insolvency team to growth and expansion.”

Under Dean’s leadership, Smith Cooper’s Business Recovery and Insolvency team has grown from two professionals in Derby to a team of 11 dedicated, enthusiastic and highly competent experts based around the Midlands in Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham with a turnover in excess of £3million.
The winners will be announced at the prestigious awards ceremony in London on 1st October 2014.
