Azets boosts restructuring and insolvency services with partner appointment

Azets, a top ten UK accounting, tax and business advisory firm and the largest regional professional services firm for SMEs across Europe, has today announced the appointment of Jonathan Amor. Jonathan joins as a partner in the restructuring and insolvency team in the North of England team.

Jonathan Amor is a chartered certified accountant, licensed Insolvency Practitioner and member of the Association of Business Recovery Professionals (R3). He has spent over a decade assisting businesses from multinational corporations to sole traders in matters of financial recovery, insolvency and liquidation. He gained seven years of experience in the insolvency department of a Big-4 accountancy firm before setting up his own firm, AM Insolvency.

Jonathan brings extensive experience in business restructuring, turnaround and rescue, operating at board level with directors, funders and other stakeholders, with a track-record of success in numerous high profile contentious insolvency cases.

The appointment will enhance Azets’ restructuring and insolvency capabilities in the North West. The team specialises in helping companies experiencing financial distress or facing closure with restructuring and rescue options. It offers specialist advisory services to assist organisations in making better long term and effective, strategic business decisions.

Nicola Clark, head of restructuring and insolvency at Azets in the North West said: “We are thrilled to welcome Jonathan to Azets. His excellent reputation and expertise combined with Azets’ local and international presence demonstrates the firm’s continued investment in key talent in the region and commitment to growing our restructuring and insolvency practice.

His expertise will support our clients over the challenging months ahead as they recover from the pandemic. As government support reduces, it’s critical businesses act early and seek advice if they are struggling now, or think cash flow may be squeezed in coming months. The earlier they act, the more options they’ll have to continue trading and recover.”

Jonathan Amor commented: “I’m delighted to join the Azets team at a time when the business is undergoing a rapid expansion. My reputation is built on the integrity of the relationships I build with clients and I’m looking forward to the next step in my career helping companies in the region build resilience into their business for the post-Covid economy.”
