Partner, Charles Russell Speechlys LLP

Hanh advises Insolvency Practitioners and other corporate and individual clients on all aspects of corporate and personal restructuring and insolvency matters, both contentious and contentious advice.

On the non-contentious side, Hanh acts for a wide range of stakeholders including insolvency practitioners (in the context of restructurings, formal insolvencies, bankruptcies and in respect of advisory work), corporate entities, litigation funders, shareholders, directors of insolvent estates and secured and unsecured creditors.

Hanh regularly advises office holders on the sales of the insolvent company’s business and assets as well as advising buyers of distressed businesses. Hanh has advised on many high-profile deals reported in the press (Oak Furnitureland, Karen Millen, Victoria Secret and Vidal Sassoon) and also carries on significant non-formal insolvency work such as advising boards of directors and shareholders/investors of insolvent or nearing-insolvent companies on their rights, duties and obligations from an insolvency perspective. In addition, Hanh acts for a number of equity lenders on receiverships and other enforcement methods.

On the contentious side, she has significant experience dealing with contentious matters including antecedent recovery actions in both personal and corporate insolvencies, debt recovery (including enforcement of non-performing loans) and directors’ misfeasance.

Hanh is an associate member of the Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) and currently sits on the IPA Finance & Risk Committee.
