Emma’s rise to the top completes what is a great success story since joining Hart Shaw in a temporary administrative role in 1993.

Working her way up the Managerial ladder, Emma qualified as an Insolvency Practitioner in 2011 and obtained her license in 2012 before being made a Partner of the firm on 1st April 2013.

Emma comments: “I am very proud to have been named a Partner in a firm with the stature and history of Hart Shaw.

“Having been with the firm for all of my working life it is a great personal achievement and I feel very honoured that the current Partner group think enough of me to invite me to join them, which I have duly accepted.”

Managing Partner, Paul Dawson comments: “The appointment of Emma Legdon as a partner on 1st of April shows that there is no bar on anybody reaching the top. Emma joined us as an office junior 20 years ago and has worked hard to get to where she is today. Well done to her, she is a role model for everybody within the firm.”

Emma will be leading the Business Recovery & Insolvency department at Hart Shaw, along with fellow Insolvency Partner Christopher Brown.

Emma comments on the current economic climate: “The past 12 months in the Recovery & Insolvency department have been tough compared to recent years, in part due to the uncertainty in the economy.

“If, as predicted, the economy slowly starts to improve this is when we could see businesses struggle with cash availability and not be able to fund their working capital requirements.”
