Our Bournemouth office opened in March 2020 and was the 6th office for Antony Batty & Company, insolvency practitioners & business recovery and turnaround specialists. We have been working in and around the Bournemouth and Poole area for several years, but servicing our local clients from our sister office in Salisbury. The opening of our Bournemouth office, right in the centre of the town, means that we can work much more closely with the local business community in Bournemouth, Poole and throughout Dorset, including Christchurch, Dorchester and Weymouth.

Our Bournemouth office is headed up by one of our Directors, Elaine Wilkins.

Elaine works closely with our Salisbury office, giving us coverage throughout Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire (including Ringwood and Southampton). All our offices work closely together, sharing resources and operating as one team.

Hugh Jesseman is the appointment taking Licensed Insolvency Practitioner for the office.
