Leonard Curtis invests in Leeds

Professional services provider, Leonard Curtis, has added new expertise to its Yorkshire operation and moved into larger offices in Leeds to strengthen its presence and multi-disciplinary offering to SMEs.

Headed up by the insolvency practitioners (IPs) and directors Sean Williams and Phil Deyes the Leeds team is now 14-strong. This includes Reach, the commercial brokerage service led by Phil Trueman and Steve Dunwell and a growing legal presence.

They are now based on the 9th floor at 7 Park Row, a fit for purpose space which will allow for further growth.

Latest recruits include Laura Green, senior associate within the corporate and commercial team at Leonard Curtis Legal, who brings over ten years’ experience in corporate law.

She joins business development manager Alana Mills in the senior management team, who also looks after the firm’s growing Lifecycle accountant community – a 3,000-strong group of UK accountants, working alongside specialists at Leonard Curtis to problem solve for SMEs.

Also in the team is IP Anthony Milnes, who is responsible for the firm’s presence along the M62 corridor. Senior manager Jason Martin specialises in property advisory and restructuring for both lenders within the property space and property owners.

Commenting on the expansion, Sean Williams said: “There is no better time to be investing in our Yorkshire operation as we look to meet the needs and challenges of local SMEs navigating their way back to recovery.

“With repayments now due on Coronavirus loan schemes, winding up petition restrictions lifting, creditor forbearance in general reducing and hybrid working conditions in play, there are many reality checks for businesses of all sizes. We are strengthening our team to get local SMEs back on track.”
