What clients say about me

"Helen Fyles ‘actually advises rather than just quoting the law’." Legal 500, 2012

My experience/ cases of note

My work covers all aspects of contentious and non-contentious insolvency. I act for all stake holders in the insolvency process, including insolvency practitioners, creditors, secured lenders and debtors. I have developed a particular niche in advising solicitors and their practices suffering financial difficulty. I was actively involved in preparing a case before the Court of Appeal on the interpretation of a new provision of the Insolvency Act, and a highlight of my early career was obtaining an arrest warrant for a delinquent director who failed to co-operate with the liquidator of his company!

My additional qualifications

Masters Degree in European Law

What I do when I'm not at work

I love watching films, reading, travelling (particularly the Greek Islands), catching up with friends in far-flung places, good food, wine and company.... and working on that novel
