Annette joined Brachers in 2002 following a fifteen year career in the property litigation department at Lovells in the City. She has been a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives since 1995.
Annette works in the Commercial Litigation team focusing on recovering and realising assets in bankruptcy estates and providing services to Licensed Insolvency Practitioners appointed as Trustees in bankruptcy cases. She also has experience of a number of complex bankruptcy annulments.
Much of her work is forensic, looking back at the circumstances which caused the bankruptcy and assisting with the Trustees’ investigations into debtors’ asset base. It is important in all cases to ensure that all of a debtor’s assets are found and made available for the benefit of creditors, which often takes quite a lot of complex detective work. She has learned how creative individuals can be in squirreling away their assets when they realise that bankruptcy is inevitable.
Annette specialises in:
