Grahame is experienced in advising Insolvency Practitioners and other stakeholders including directors, shareholders and unsecured and secured creditors in all aspect of insolvency law and practice. He regularly assists with obtaining formal insolvency appointments, proper discharge of appointee duties, sale of assets or businesses from formal insolvency processes and contentious matters arising from the swelling of the insolvency estate asset pool.

A smaller but growing proportion of Grahame’s work involves advising individuals who find themselves embroiled in insolvency matters and in need of specialist advice in relation to duties to cooperate with an officeholder; evaluating and responding to claims made in respect of antecedent transactions; potential personal liability and criminal sanction arising from breaches of insolvency legislation; directors disqualification proceedings and liabilities arising from guarantees.

What is your favourite film?
Happy Gilmore

How do you like to relax outside of work?
Spending time with my family, golf and football (watching more than playing these days)

Which aspect of your job do you find most rewarding?
Insolvency by its nature is an imperfect situation, however I often get the opportunity to work with professionals of different disciplines to bring about a situation where a business (albeit not the corporate shell) may be saved and employment of the hardworking employees preserved.
