Profile - The IFT

Sam Payne Harrison Clark Rickerbys inc Sprecher Grier

Role: Lawyer


I am nearly 20 years qualified as a solicitor working on Restructuring and Insolvency assignments, trying to make sure businesses survive, keep job losses to a minimum and ensure creditors get as much money back as possible. As a member of the Institute For Turnaround (IFT) I uphold their principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, due skill and courtesy. So, if you need someone to help you turn your business situation around, I’m here to help.

I have worked on many turnaround assignments over the years and across many sectors including manufacturing, retail, leisure, pharmaceutical and banking and I relish the opportunity to work with and for management boards ensuring we maintain value in the business, and make it viable for the future.

When I take on a case, I try and put myself in my clients’ shoes and understand what represents a successful outcome – then, I try and better it. I’m always available for a chat, and often work around the clock to get the best results. From day to day, I work with and for corporates, lenders and accountants, from local firms to the Big 4.

Outside of work, I’m passionate about sports, including cricket, football, tennis, squash, skiing and golf, and of course my wife and three children.
