Heather Dobson

Partner

Area of Expertise

  • Asset recovery - insolvency

I am an experienced solicitor specialising in all aspects of insolvency and restructuring. I also hold a non-appointment-taking insolvency licence. 

I work with insolvency practitioners, directors, individuals, lenders, landlords, trade creditors, and other stakeholders, and have experience of a broad range of corporate and personal insolvency procedures, and rescue and restructuring strategies. I also work with companies and shareholders on solvent liquidations and tax efficient exit-planning. 

I love building strong relationships with clients; working collaboratively with them to understand what it is important to them, both commercially and personally, and helping them achieve their objectives. 

I am ranked as a "Leading Individual" in Chambers & Partners and as a "Next Generation Lawyer" in Legal 500.  I have been independently recognised for my technical acumen, pragmatism, ability to achieve results, and strong client and interpersonal skills. 

I often deliver presentations and training to the insolvency profession (for example at R3 and SESCA conferences, and in-house to insolvency practitioner clients and their teams). 

I can usually be found enjoying a dip in the sea, on my allotment, or cooking for friends.
