Ruth Duncan

Ruth Duncan entered the profession in the mid-1980s at the London office of Levy Gee (now Vantis) after a period at the Insolvency Service.

Since then Ruth has worked in the London offices of Grant Thornton and Smith & Williamson. She was latterly at Smith & Williamson’s York office.

On her return from York, Ruth worked at Baker Tilly’s Bromley office before leaving to set up her own firm Maxwell Davies in February 2003. This practice was taken into Atherton Bailey in June 2006.

Ruth specialises in helping SMEs and sole-traders in financial difficulty. Much of her work is referred via accountants and other professionals who value her holistic approach to clients’ insolvency crises.

Out of work, Ruth practises archery and plays tennis and golf (extraordinarily badly).

“The most important thing about Ruth’s approach is she is professional, not pompous. She is sympathetic to clients who have problems, listening and finding solutions.”

Testimonials

"Ruth and her team helped me through a difficult time in a caring and supportive way. I know I can always go to Ruth for advice and guidance which will be given impartially and fairly for all parties concerned. This is very much an open, clear and professional relationship which I appreciate."

Mr B IVA

"The most important thing about Ruth's approach is she is professional, not pompous. She is sympathetic to clients who have problems, listening and finding solutions..."

Mr M. Referring Accountant

"I found Ruth and her team to be patient and approachable as they were always at the other end of the phone to answer any questions that we may have thereby providing us with comforting assurances as much as possible. They were also frank and candid in telling us where they did not have an answer."

Mr L Company Director

"I would like to re-iterate my thanks to Ruth and her staff for putting my finances back on track, so efficiently and effectively. As a now retired person, I hesitate to imagine my financial outlook had you not successfully orchestrated my IVA."
