Grant Thornton UK has expanded its Restructuring and Forensic offering in Scotland with the appointment of a new Executive.
The leading business and financial advisor has hired Julie Dallas as Restructuring and Forensic Executive, based in the firm’s Glasgow office to join Grant Thornton UK’s 17-strong Scottish Restructuring, Insolvency and Forensic team which works with a wide range of corporate clients and intermediaries across Scotland.
Julie Dallas joins the team from AlixPartners, where she spent the last nine years working on a number of major investigations and restructuring assignments, such as the trading insolvencies of various businesses, including major UK high street retailers, and the wind-down of an international bank.
Stuart Preston, Head of Grant Thornton UK’s Restructuring and and Forensic team in Scotland, said:
“Julie’s appointment further adds to the experience of the team in advising corporates, lenders and stakeholders of stressed and distressed companies based throughout Scotland, a large number of whom are businesses with international presence and the potential for future growth. In recent months, we’ve seen an uplift in the number of corporates proactively seeking advice, which is a positive sign as early advice is crucial to maximising the likelihood of ensuring the business’s long-term positive outlook.”
Julie Dallas added:
“Having spent much of the past year based in Switzerland on a forensic investigation, the opportunity to take up a role based in Scotland that offered work on both corporate restructuring and investigation opportunities really stood out to me. I’m already working closely with two corporate advisory assignments and I’m looking forward to assisting Grant Thornton’s diverse range of clients, unlocking their potential for growth.”
