Edward Bible

Senior Associate Solicitor - Restructuring and Insolvency

What’s your role?

I advise Insolvency Practitioners on all aspects of insolvency.  I enjoy dealing with technical problems and providing practical and cost effective solutions.  Often the solution is one that is based on a pragmatic approach rather than a strict legal route.

Your experience

I trained in the City and then decided to work in a regional law firm. I have dealt with a wide range of insolvency issues dealing with all types of insolvency procedures and both contentious and non contentious matters. I enjoy dealing with technical problems and investigating issues and finding a solution.

I passed the JIEB in 2002 and have a non appointment taking licence. In 2012/2013 I was President of the Insolvency Practitioners Association. This gave me a detailed insight into the Insolvency profession and the issues affecting IP’s and creditors.

Ed is a solicitor who has aided me in many Insolvency cases where I have greatly valued his opinion and ability to understand the issues involved. Sometimes the issues can be quite complex and the key is to simplify the problem to manageable proportions. Ed is good to work with.
