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

Formerly a Director of JWS Business Recovery Limited Rupert has become a Consultant to the Company and will be well placed to provide commercial advice to those companies and individuals who are experiencing financial difficulties.

He has been in the insolvency profession for nigh on 40 years. By 1985 he had begun to specialise in insolvency whilst at KMG Thomson McLintock (now KPMG) in London, obtaining his insolvency licence with Arthur Young (now Ernst Young) in Reading before moving to Bristol in 1990 as the partner for the newly created BDO Binder Hamlyn South West insolvency practice.

Since then he has been based in Bristol and has provided both formal and informal insolvency services to many clients across the South of England and Wales.

His experience has given him much commercial expertise in saving troubled businesses; dealing with the majority of the UK major banking groups and with Government Departments including HM Revenue & Customs and The Insolvency Service.

He has been on the Charity Commission Interim Managers Panel since the 1990s, and has been one of the longest serving members of The West of England Initiative.

He is involved with charitable organisations in the south west, including St John Ambulance and is currently a trustee of the award winning Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust.

Rupert has decided to step down from taking formal insolvency appointments, in order to concentrate solely on delivering advice and recommendations to businesses on their range of options, if it appears that formal insolvency is a real risk.
