Regional chartered accountancy firm Albert Goodman is proud to announce the addition of a new partner to their Business Recovery and Insolvency team.

Dan James, brings 20 years of insolvency and restructuring experience to the company, joining from his previous position at Begbies Traynor, where he worked as a partner for 18 months.

Mr James is no stranger to the industry, having worked with a broad range of business sizes and sectors at some of the UK’s top 20 accountancy firms.

He will work alongside Laurence Russell, the firm’s insolvency practitioner, at the Albert Goodman headquarters in Taunton.

Mr James said: “Having worked with a number of top accountancy firms, it’s exciting to join Albert Goodman at a time they have been voted the best accountancy firm to work for in the UK.

"Working with SMEs to guide and advise them at a crucial time in their business cycle is something I really enjoy and I’m looking forward to getting to know Albert Goodman’s portfolio of clients to continue this value-added work.”

Iain McVicar, managing partner at Albert Goodman, said: “We are making further investments in our leadership team as the business continues to grow. Appointing Dan in a specialised area will help us expand our business recovery and insolvency side of the business as we see increased demand from the fallout of Covid. We look forward to working with Dan and extend a huge welcome to him.”
