We are pleased to announce the promotion of Michael Roome to Partner in our Business Recovery and Insolvency team (“BRIS”).

Having joined Smith Cooper in 2010, Michael has been with us for over 8 years, and has extensive experience in the industry, dealing with a number of large and complex issues across both the corporate and personal insolvency arena.

Dean Nelson, Head of BRIS comments “Michael has been instrumental in the growth of our business, and prides himself on his strong technical and commercial ability.”

“Michael has played a pivotal role in establishing and expanding our presence in the East Midlands market, winning work consistently in a challenging and competitive arena. I personally wish Michael every success in the next stage of his career and congratulate him on his well-deserved promotion and achievement.”

On his appointment, Michael comments “I am naturally delighted to be joining the Partnership of such a long established and prestigious firm, which not only continues to strive for growth, but holds the interests of its clients and connectors at the very core of its business.

We have already grown to be one of the pre-eminent teams when it comes to offering advice and support for distressed and underperforming businesses. The current market continues to challenge everyone, and with so much uncertainty in the economic climate, we need to ensure that our offering remains as strong as it is, whilst also playing an integral part in Smith Coopers’ continued success.”

Having started a career in Insolvency in 1996, Michael passed his Joint Insolvency Examination Board exams in 2017, becoming a qualified Insolvency Practitioner. Michael has now obtained his practising licence and has recently taken his first appointment.

Our BRIS division are going from strength to strength and have established a highly reputable presence in the both the local and national marketplace, bolstered by our recent shortlisting for two prestigious TRI industry awards, namely Insolvency Team of the Year and Rising Star of the Year (Connor Gratton, Insolvency Administrator).
