Technical support, training and advice for insolvency professionals from Malcolm Niekirk.

I qualified as a solicitor in 1987, with Moore & Blatch in Southampton. I spent five years with them (including two as an articled clerk) and then moved to Lester Aldridge in Bournemouth in 1990.

At that time I had general experience in commercial law, including banking, lending and security, corporate finance and commercial property as well as insolvency. At Lester Aldridge I soon came to focus on the insolvency work. I was appointed a partner, and then head of the insolvency department.

In 2001 I was one of two equity partners who opened the Southampton office, and then continued to develop the team from there.

I moved to Coffin Mew in Southampton in 2007, where I had the opportunity to build a team from nothing. I handed it over in 2015, after building it to five full-time professional members. In my time there we opened a second, successful office in London and were twice nominated for the Insolvency and Rescue Awards.

What now? Well, there are some clues on the links page! If you would like to know more, pick up the phone or send me an email, and we can meet for a coffee and a chat.
