Nick Pike

Nick Pike is a solicitor and partner at Pinsent Masons LLP, having worked previously at what are now Gowlings WLG and DLA Piper. He has specialised in restructuring and insolvency law since he qualified in 1987. Nick acts for a very wide range of IPs from the Big Four to sole practitioners and specialises in insolvency dispute resolution in both corporate and personal cases. Nick also advises IPs on regulatory issues and directors on their duties when companies are in financial distress. Although he lives and works in London his work takes me all over the UK and abroad. He has worked on a number of high profile cases involving insolvency fraud and asset tracing, advising practitioners on recovering assets worldwide.

Nick is a regular speaker at conferences for restructuring and insolvency professionals, including numerous R3 events. He devised and organises the annual Pinsent Masons Restructuring and Insolvency Conference, the largest of its type. He is also a member of R3, INSOL Europe, the Insolvency Lawyers' Association, the Fraud Advisory panel and he edits Pinsent Masons' Restructuring Business magazine.

The profession is facing a difficult time, with the number of formal appointments heading for an all time low as a result of a variety of factors; almost a perfect storm. Whilst R3's members have adapted well to the new environment, there is much more to be done to ensure the profession continues to prosper. Nick aims to make a meaningful contribution to progress as R3 rises to that challenge.
