Frances is President of R3, the insolvency trade body as well as a Partner and Head of Insolvency and Business Recovery at Moon Beever in Holborn, London WC1. Her varied brief covers General insolvency, fraud, VAT, provisional liquidation and injunctions. One of her most interesting cases involved a German bankrupt fugitive from the German authorities whose colourful attempts to evade his creditors included: receiving cash glued into German magazines sent via DHL; creating claimants to the ownership of the substantial house he had resided in rent free for a decade and attempting to set up his own bank!
Through her involvement with R3, Frances has already appeared on SKY News, BBC Breakfast News and Channel 4 News and briefed MPs.
She was also Chair of R3’s Smaller Practices Group (SPG) giving smaller to medium size practices a route to lobbying and the media as well as technical support and guidance which the larger firms have with ease.
Frances is also, inter alia, Chair of the Appeal Committee for ACCA, a member of the Insolvency Law Evaluation Panel for the Insolvency Service and the CBI Insolvency panel. She is also a member of Insolvency Lawyers Association and the International Bar Association (IBA), as well as the National Farmer’s Union (NFU) and Carlton and Adam Street Clubs.
