Well-known insolvency expert joins Begbies Traynor’s teams in North Yorkshire and Teesside

Qualified lawyer and insolvency expert Mike Sharp has joined independent business rescue and recovery specialist Begbies Traynor as an insolvency consultant, working across its offices in York and Teesside.

With over 35 years’ experience, Mike’s long career in insolvency law began in 1985 and includes senior roles, such as finance partner, at leading law firms in Harrogate as well as, most recently, working for a small, independent insolvency practice. Mike has worked in North Yorkshire and lived in Ripon for the last 20 years.

After retiring 15 months ago, Mike has decided to return to work, helping to process insolvency cases at Begbies Traynor’s fast-growing Teesside office in Stockton-on-Tees as well as supporting its team in York.

Mike comments: “I’ve known the guys at Begbies Traynor for many years – I like them and I trust them so when I was offered the chance to help support the Yorkshire and Teesside operations, it was too good an opportunity to miss. I’m pleased to be part of such a reputable team and, with my expertise in the field, I hope to further boost their capacity to support businesses across the region.”

Julian Pitts, managing partner for Begbies Traynor in Yorkshire, said: “Having known Mike since the 1980s, I am well aware of his knowledge and skills. To have someone with his reputation and experience joining our busy York and Teesside offices is great news. Over the last seven years, we have seen a huge growth in demand for our services here and will be continuing to expand the team.”

Begbies Traynor Group currently has ten offices and employs around 120 staff in Yorkshire, the Humber and the North East.  It offers a full range of professional services including corporate recovery, forensic accounting advice, corporate finance, property, funding, debt collection and personal insolvency.
