Gareth Harris

Partner and co-head of Restructuring


Gareth provides robust commercial and practical restructuring advice across a wide range of sectors and stakeholders. He oversees our restructuring contacts within central government and HM Treasury and co-manages the dedicated national restructuring team across the UK.

He is ACA and JIEB-qualified and is also an Expert Witness in Insolvency matters.  He has previously worked for three different funders so has a strong understanding of the funding market and its requirements. Gareth spends much of his time working alongside directors, preserving and enhancing value in difficult financial circumstances.

Gareth has a naturally collaborative working style, preferring to work with directors and stakeholders to implement solutions, but he is not afraid to adopt a more direct and robust stance where required.

‘My job is fast-moving. I have to think on my feet and come up with solutions in pressurised situations while keeping calm and measured. I love that I get to work with a talented team to save jobs wherever possible; the deals where that is achieved are immensely satisfying.’

Outside of work, Gareth loves spending time with his family, whether it’s hosting family barbeques, enjoying a pint with friends or being out on the ski slopes.
