Rothmans Chartered Accountants, one of the South’s leading accountancy practices, has set up a new insolvency arm, Rothmans Recovery Ltd, as part of its continuing programme of expansion.
Insolvency specialists, Kevin Weir and Rupert Mullins, both previously directors with insolvency and business recovery firm, Benedict Mackenzie, are joining Rothmans Recovery as directors and are bringing their teams with them to new offices in Hampshire, Wiltshire and Bristol.
“We were very keen to acquire a highly-respected practice with well-known insolvency and corporate recovery practitioners in order to further enhance our services to business,” said Martin Osborne, Rothmans Senior Partner. “Together with our extensive number of offices throughout the south of England, this new specialist arm will be able to provide further help to businesses that are hoping to maximise the opportunities now that the economy is at last picking up.”
Kevin Weir will lead the Rothmans Recovery team from offices at Portsmouth in Hampshire and Salisbury in Wiltshire. Starting his career as a Chartered Tax Advisor and with more than 25 years’ experience, including with the Inland Revenue as well as running his own business, Kevin has specialised in insolvency for many years.
Kevin Weir stated: “Joining a firm with the size and reputation of Rothmans is an exciting move for myself, Rupert and the entire team. It is an excellent opportunity to provide a superb service to businesses of all sizes.”
Rupert Mullins, who will head up the new Rothmans Recovery Bristol office, has been an insolvency practitioner for 25 years, serving businesses throughout West and South West England and Wales. He also provides professional assistance to clients of organisations such as the Federation of Small Businesses and Business West.
