Chartered accountancy and business advisory practice Leathers LLP is today launching a sister practice specialising in restructuring and insolvency.
The new independent firm, Leather Matthews LLP, will be headed up by former Deloitte director Neil Matthews, a restructuring specialist who has overseen some of the region’s biggest restructuring projects and worked across the UK.
Leather Matthews will complement the work of Newcastle-based Leathers LLP by offering a range of services to both companies and directors who are in financial difficulty, assisting with turnaround management and restructuring advice through to overseeing liquidations and receiverships.
With a career spanning over 27 years, Matthews has specialised in all aspects of corporate recovery, business reviews, administrations, receiverships, liquidations and bankruptcies, since 1986.
Working alongside him is Michael Leather, who set up Leathers LLP in 1993 where he is senior partner.
It has been involved in a number of tax restructuring schemes and flotations and acts for some well-known North East businesses, plcs and high net-worth individuals.
The move to launch Leather Matthews LLP will further strengthen the Leathers LLP offering to both existing and new clients.
Leather said: “At Leathers our clients are not only attracted to our range of services, but also our ability to understand and anticipate client needs and deliver a quality service.”
Matthews added: “Leathers LLP has built an excellent reputation in the industry for providing an unparalleled level of service and I’m delighted to be working with Michael and the Leathers team to launch Leather Matthews.”
