Insolvency specialist Begbies Traynor is further strengthening its Hull team with the promotion of Laura Baxter to the position of senior insolvency manager.
With over 12 years’ experience of providing insolvency advice to businesses and individuals, Laura joined Begbies Traynor in 2012 as a senior insolvency administrator. Based at the firm’s growing Hull office, she was promoted to assistant manager in 2016, becoming a manager a year later. Previously, she spent six years working as a case administrator for another professional services firm.
A fully qualified insolvency practitioner, Laura achieved her JIEB professional exams in corporate and personal insolvency in March 2019, passing first time. She specialises in corporate and personal insolvency, distressed advisor and business investigations.
