Hannah Davie - Through the breadth of experience Hannah has gained as a leading insolvency practitioner, she now heads Grant Thornton UK LLP’s Contentious estates and family disputes team which specialises in assisting beneficiaries, trustees, and representatives in matrimonial, family, trust, and probate disputes. Disputes within families are increasingly common, whether it be following a divorce or the death of a family member. These disputes focus on the value of assets, competing claims, issues relating to executors and conflicts between beneficiaries. They are often emotionally charged and can also prove financially devastating, particularly where assets have been hidden or misappropriated.
Hannah, working in tandem with lawyers, designs strategies that ensure the most appropriate action is taken to achieve maximum recovery and the best possible outcome for the client. She can use the Insolvency Act, along with other civil legislation, such as the use of liquidations, bankruptcies and court appointed receiverships, as tools to assist with investigations, asset tracing and recovery processes. She is also supported by our Grant Thornton’s large forensic practice, corporate intelligence team, and valuation experts both in the UK and internationally.
