Chris Purkiss
I am a Partner in Kingston Smith & Partners LLP, the Insolvency and Recovery arm of Kingston Smith, with the main focus being on investigations and contentious insolvency, of which the team has a strong reputation and significant experience.

I have over 20 years experience in all forms of corporate and personal insolvencies although latterly concentrating on investigations and contentious insolvencies. I have dealt with numerous high profile bankruptcies and liquidations including television presenters, retired football professionals and a major football club, as well as a number of contentious liquidations that involved investigations into the affairs of companies, litigation against directors, asset tracing and pursuit of antecedent transactions some of which included VAT fraud, tax avoidance schemes and disqualification of Directors
