Insolvency Practitioners
Claire Howell and Antony Batty

Claire started working for Antony Batty & Company LLP in 2009 following a career as a serving Police Officer for the Metropolitan Police. After an enjoyable 7 years with ABc, which saw her progress from junior administrator to senior administrator, she moved on to HW Fisher, a mid-tier firm, as an assistant manager, running a team which worked across all insolvency sectors.

She successfully passed the JIEB exams in 2019 at her first sitting, becoming a licensed insolvency practitioner. In late 2019 she accepted a role as a senior manager at Hudson Weir, where she continued to run her own team and work on a wide variety of cases from Members Voluntary Liquidations and Creditors Voluntary Liquidations to trading Administrations, including the long-standing Aquascutum brand.

In June 2021, bringing a wealth of experience as well as her personable nature, she returned to Antony Batty & Company as a fully licensed, appointment taking partner, based at our London office.

Outside of work Claire is a busy mother to a son and owner of a re-homed Guide Dog, both of whom keep her on her toes.

Antony Batty, the firm’s senior partner and founding director said:

“Claire comes back to a different, larger company, with new offices in Bournemouth, Croydon and in Southwest and Wales, alongside our joint venture offices in Abingdon and Reading.

Her experience and expertise will be vital as we continue to grow. Of equal importance is that she knows how we work, putting both staff and client service first and creating an atmosphere of collaboration. We’re glad to have her back in the ABc family.”
