Senior lawyer Annabel Whittaker has joined the insolvency and litigation teams at Nottingham-based law firm Actons.
Whittaker, who joins the firm from Fraser Brown, qualified as a solicitor in 2006 and as an insolvency practitioner in 2013. She deals with all aspects of corporate recovery and insolvency, and advises businesses on resolving a range of commercial disputes.
Her appointment as an associate at Actons adds further strength to the firm’s insolvency practice, which has again been ranked in the top tier in the East Midlands by the 2016 edition of The Legal 500.
Whittaker said: “I’m really proud to have joined Actons, a forward thinking law firm, which is so well known for providing an excellent service. I’ve known Nicky and other members of the team at Actons for a while, and when the opportunity came up to join them, it was one I couldn’t turn down”.
“I think the two main things that attracted me them was their position in the local market and their reputation, especially on the Insolvency side. And additionally they are really nice people”.
Nicky Calthrop-Owen, director and head of insolvency at Actons, added: “I am absolutely delighted that Annabel has joined us. She is held in high regard by clients and other professionals alike, and we are looking forward to her future with us”.
Nic Elliott, director and head of the dispute resolution group at Actons, said: “The appointment of Annabel supports our growth plans for the firm and will help develop the already great reputation these teams have in the local area and increasingly across the country”.
