The KPMG Restructuring team is one of the largest in the UK at around 500 client facing professionals and boasts a senior line-up of more than 30 Partners and Associate Partners, around 50 Directors and almost 90 Associate Directors.
Details of the individual experience of our Partner and Director group, together with our Associate Directors in sector leadership roles can be explored from here.
Our influence on the global network is strong with two of the three global restructuring leaders based in the UK – Blair Nimmo (Global Head of Insolvency) and Mark Raddan (Global Head of Turnaround). Angel Martin, based in KPMG in Spain, completes the global restructuring leadership team as Head of Financial Restructuring.
International capability and reach is also a significant differentiator for the KPMG team in the UK who form part of a global network of restructuring practices with c1,600 professionals in KPMG member firms spanning more than 150 territories.

Collaborating and coordinating with our Restructuring colleagues globally has become an everyday occurrence, but I still find it one of the most rewarding aspects of the role.
In the UK, Blair and Mark are supported on the Leadership team by 3 further Senior Partners in the form of Libby Elliott our Risk Management Partner, Will Wright and Jim Tucker.
