JAMES STARES

I am a licensed insolvency practitioner and business advisor.

I began my business restructuring career in the 1990’s and passed my Insolvency Exams in 2008. Throughout my career, I have advised business owners, individuals, and other key stakeholders on financial risk. I would like to think that clients would recommend me as someone who provides constructive, practical, and pragmatic solutions. Before commencing JWS Business Recovery, I spent a number of years operating within the large national Insolvency Practices of PwC and Grant Thornton. I have been fortunate to work on a number of high profile and complex insolvencies.

Being a business owner now myself, I can fully appreciate the day to day challenges faced by business owners. It can be a lonely existence when things are not going so well, so immediate professional advice and support when financial difficulties arise should not be delayed. We are approachable and there isn’t much that we haven’t experienced before.

The experiences I have gained over many years in professional practice covers not just formal insolvency work, but other assignments such as investigations, due diligence and advisory work, business reviews for both borrowers and lenders, and financial restructuring including disposal or solvent winding up of non core business activities.

Salisbury has been my home for over 25 years, and I am privileged to live and work in the City. My career has come full circle, having started out specialising in business recovery in a boutique firm, and I am now very proud to be an owner manager of a firm of independent business recovery specialists with a great team to support me.

I am authorised to act as an insolvency practitioner by the Insolvency Practitioners Association in the United Kingdom (Licence No 11490).

Anyone seeking advice or guidance on financial or operational challenges can contact me by email at james@jwsbr.com, or alternatively on 07557 403048.

 
 
TERENA ELLIS

Terena has specialised in insolvency since 1991. She is experienced in all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency, from commencement of a case through to closure and is based in the firm's Salisbury office.

Terena spent six years as a senior manager at well-known business rescue and insolvency specialists, Benedict Mackenzie before moving on to work for Rothmans Recovery Limited (now called JWS Business Recovery Limited) as a director and senior manager. She has case expertise across a wide range of sectors, including the building and leisure industries, as well as with individuals.

Salisbury has been home to Terena all her life which has gained her a wealth of local knowledge and contacts. Her favourite hobbies are delving into family history and she is currently building a rapidly expanding family tree. After owning a Chihuahua for 12 years, when he sadly passed away she adopted another at the age of 18 months from the Chihuahua UK Rescue which she now fully supports.

Terena is a member of the Association of Business Recovery Professionals and the Insolvency Practitioners' Association. She holds the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency.

 
 
MATT REEDS

Matt joined the team at JWS in January 2021 having previously worked at Albert Goodman LLP in Weymouth.

Matt started working in the insolvency profession in the late nineties and passed the Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB) examinations in 2014.

Early on in his career Matt specialised in personal insolvency and managed a bankruptcy team at RSM in Southampton, which also dealt with a number of complex and high profile Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs).

However, Matt was keen to use his insolvency license to its full potential and moved on in order to be able to take insolvency appointments. In recent years Matt has acted in respect of a number of weird and wonderful companies, including a bouncy castle manufacturer, a LEGO specialist, overseas antique dealers, as well as numerous public house and restaurants.

In fact it’s the variety of the work and the uniqueness of the clients requiring help which Matt loves most about his job.

Matt resides in Poole with his wife, young daughter and their recently adopted recuse cat named Whisky and is very much looking forward to working in the City of Salisbury.

Outside of work, Matt can be found on the terraces of AFC Bournemouth and Poole Town FC, where he has had match day roles at both clubs for a number of years.

Matt can be contacted by email at matt@jwsbr.com or alternatively on 07914 422585.
