About Jan Chillery

Jan is a partner who specialises in insolvency, business recovery and turnaround for both corporate and private individuals. She is a full member of the Insolvency Practitioners Association and R3, the Association of Business Recovery Professionals. Jan also handles commercial dispute resolution and litigation work. She is also a non-executive Director of Muir Group Housing Association Ltd.

Jan has a determined and focused approach to all her work which is much valued by her clients.

Having worked for several years before qualifying as a solicitor, including a period as a manager at a limited company under administrative receivership, her first-hand experience gives her a valuable insight to clients’ problems. Dealings with insolvency office holders, the Court or the Insolvency Service can be very stressful and Jan works hard to smooth the path towards a satisfactory outcome in matters such as asset purchases, director disqualification proceedings or bankruptcy annulment. She provides clear and reliable advice on options available before and after formal insolvency proceedings.

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2003, Jan has managed insolvent estates where Simon Edwards (the firm’s senior partner and authorised insolvency practitioner) is trustee in bankruptcy, administrator, liquidator or supervisor of voluntary arrangements. Jan also advises other insolvency office holders about asset realisations, such as antecedent transaction claims and possession proceedings.

Jan’s pre-qualification experience also includes five years at a cross-media publishing company in London, handling commercial work such as licence and production agreements for video, music and spoken word.

She qualified with Distinction at the University of Law, Chester. Jan also has an Honours degree in International Business after study in the Netherlands and at Plymouth University.

Having looked online for a disputes and resolution solicitor, we came across Jan Chillery’s details and contacted her regarding a personal matter. Jan followed up the enquiry immediately which confirmed in our mind she was the person for the job, seeing as this was such an important matter to us. Jan helped us build a defence against a bankruptcy petition that was served incorrectly and wrong for a number of reasons. Having built a case for this, Jan was extremely helpful and efficient throughout this whole situation. She was proactive in her approach and after dismissal of the petition, with costs in our favour, she cleared the Land Charges as well. We were very happy with her work and would definitely look to use her services again in the future if required.
