JAMES STARES

James is a licensed insolvency practitioner and business advisor, with more than 15 years' experience in advising companies and other key stakeholders on business, management and financial risk. He specialises in providing constructive, practical and preventative solutions for businesses in difficulty across all industry sectors, including retail, manufacturing and service providers, hospitality and leisure. He is based in the firm's Salisbury office and serves clients across the Southern and Solent regions.

Previously James was a director of Rothmans Recovery Limited for two years and prior to that managed the business recovery and restructuring teams at both PwC and Grant Thornton in the Solent region. He also served as Chairman of R3 (The Association of Business Recovery Professionals) for the Southern Region from 2012 to 2014.

His wide-ranging expertise covers investigations, due diligence and advisory work, as well as leading business reviews for both borrowers and lenders. This includes the identification and development of financial restructuring opportunities, supported by a combination of debt-raising, disposal of non-core businesses and strategic change.

James has lived in Salisbury for 20 years. His wife, Rachael, works closely with the horseracing bloodstock industry, and they have two sons. While James enjoys travel and playing golf, currently much of his spare time is taken up with researching and finding original materials to use for renovations to his early Victorian home in the city.

James is authorised to act as an insolvency practitioner by the Insolvency Practitioners Association in the United Kingdom (Licence No 11490).

 
 
Rupert Mullins TD FIPA

Rupert has been in the insolvency profession for over 30 years and has worked on some of the largest, and smallest, assignments in the UK. Starting with Thomson McLintock (now KPMG) in London, he moved to Bristol in 1990, where he set up the BDO Binder Hamlyn South West insolvency practice.

He is based in the firm's Bristol office and serves clients across the South West and Wales regions.

His experience has given him much commercial expertise in saving troubled businesses. He has worked closely with the majority of the major banking groups in the UK.

He is the firm's representative on the Charity Commission Interim Managers Panel, the Business West Professional Advice Service Panel and is advisor to a number of other local organisations.

He advocates that businesses should seek financial advice early on to avoid formal insolvency and has been able, with the help of the enterprise's existing advisors, to put many organisations back on track. Where the only route is formal insolvency, he will do his utmost to conduct an orderly run-down and, whenever possible, pay a dividend to creditors. Recent formal appointments include retailers, solicitors, local charities, IFAs, building contractors and hoteliers. In cases closed to April 2017, over 50% have resulted in a dividend being paid to creditors.

He is involved with a number of pro bono and charitable organisations in the south west that includes being a trustee of Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust; a member of the panel for the Bristol & Bath area of The Fredericks Foundation, a charitable provider of funding to smaller business enterprises and a member of the County Priory Group of St John Ambulance.

Rupert is authorised to act as an insolvency practitioner by the Insolvency Practitioners Association in the United Kingdom (Licence No 7258).

Previously she spent six years as a senior manager at well-known business rescue and insolvency specialists, Benedict Mackenzie. She has case expertise across a wide range of sectors, including the building and leisure industries, as well as with individuals.

Salisbury has been home to Terena all her life which has gained her a wealth of local knowledge and contacts.
