MEET THE ADMINISTRATORS: BDO
HEAD OF BUSINESS RESTRUCTURING AND INSOLVENCY
The troubled law firm’s London and Paris offices are being taken care of by Shay Bannon and Mark Shaw, business restructuring partners at BDO, as joint administrators until a core team assists in the winding-down of the business.
Shaw is a London-based partner at the accountancy firm where he works with the restructuring team, focusing particularly on restructuring advisory assignments.
Before joining BDO in 2006, he was a partner in a mid-tier London firm for six years. He holds a first class degree in accountancy, the ICAEW corporate finance qualification, an insolvency licence and is a qualified chartered accountant. Bannon is the head of the business restructuring and insolvency unit nationally and has been advising on restructuring and recovery options for many years.
He also leads the lender services unit where he works with banks and asset-based lenders.
