What is a Typical Week in the Life of an Insolvency Practitioner?

What is a Typical Week in the Life of an Insolvency Practitioner?

We asked Steve Illes, partner and Insolvency Practitioner at Antony Batty and Co London about a typical week

Many of the solicitors and accountants who refer work to us here at Antony Batty’s London office will broadly know what an insolvency practitioner does during the working week, but do they know the detail? Probably not. When it comes to businesses, most probably don’t know, unless they need to use our services. To the general public, we only become news when there is a high profile CVA, such as Philip Green’s Arcadia, or the collapse of Carillion.

Day to day, week to week, there is, of course, much more to what we do, and a great deal of it centres around helping businesses survive and turn things around, rather than liquidation and administration. In this article, Steve Illes, one of our insolvency practitioners, and a partner too, describes what a typical week at the office looks like.

A Typical Day for Steve

There is, of course, no such thing as a typical day, as anything can happen, and often does. However, a day can go something like this:

Some Key Activities During a Week

The typical working day for an insolvency practitioner such as Steve shows how much is packed in to 10 or more hours and it can change in an instant. Taking the longer time period of a week, you can see the specific meetings and tasks that are booked into the diary in advance:

Another week could, of course, look completely different, with the focus being on an administration, for example, or restructuring work to help a business turn itself around.

Whatever Steve’s week turns out to be like, contact him or call him on 0208 088 0633 if your business, or a client’s business needs the advice of an insolvency practitioner. It doesn’t have to be in London. As you can see, Steve will travel as far as Durham if needs be.
