Insolvency and corporate recovery specialists Focus Insolvency Group are delighted to announce the expansion of their existing operations with the opening of their latest regional office in Leeds.

The newest office officially opened at the beginning of June 2016, and will work alongside the head office in Wigan and existing regional offices in Central Manchester, Scarborough and London.

Anthony Fisher, Managing Director at Focus Insolvency Group, said of the new office:
“Following on from the success of our Manchester office, which was opened in April 2015 and has led to a marked increase in new appointments and strategic relationships with professional advisors, the time is right to expand our office base further into the heart of the Yorkshire area. We have seen increasing demand for professional insolvency advice from our ever growing professional partners in this area and so a base there is the right move to build on these relationships.

Our new office, based in Garforth, will enable professional advisors in the region such as accountants, solicitors and independent financial advisors, fast and local access to our licensed Insolvency Practitioners and turnaround specialists to assist their clients.”

The new office will be overseen by new Director Derek Cooper. Derek has over 30 years of experience in business turnaround, personal finance and insolvency. He has a wealth of insolvency knowledge and has given advice at the highest level; he has offered guidance and support to hundreds of company directors and entrepreneurs.

Derek Cooper said:
“I am delighted to be heading up the new Leeds office. I have worked closely with many of Focus’ insolvency team before, and I have found their dynamic team to be profoundly knowledgeable. Having worked within this industry for many years myself, I am sure this new venture will be a great success.”

Natalie Hughes, Licensed Insolvency Practitioner and Operations Director at Focus Insolvency Group said of Derek:
“I have worked with Derek for many years, and I continued to be impressed by Derek’s ability to communicate with everybody he meets, ranging from successful directors that wish to restructure their businesses, through to struggling directors who need insolvency advice. Derek’s vast knowledge base and excellent advice will be a true asset to Focus Insolvency Group.”

Focus Insolvency Group provides expert advice and solutions for individuals and businesses struggling with debt and financial pressures.  Professional advisors wishing to refer clients they believe would benefit from the advice and solutions on offer should contact the Leeds office on 0113 208 3345.
