Faye Griffiths
Senior Consultant Solicitor

Faye qualified as a solicitor in 2008 and is a specialist corporate restructuring and insolvency lawyer, with over 12 years’ experience working both in the UK and internationally.

She has specialised in corporate insolvency since 2004, when she joined the Guildford office of a large UK accountancy firm in their Corporate Recovery team, gaining valuable hands-on experience of corporate insolvency processes. In 2007, she commenced her training contract at a niche law firm in Horsham. Since then, she has spent her career working at top tier international law firms in London, Singapore and Hong Kong.

She advises on all aspects of corporate and financial restructuring and contentious and non-contentious insolvency matters. Her clients have included boards of directors, shareholders, companies in financial difficulty, banks, financial institutions, secured and unsecured creditors and insolvency practitioners. She has significant experience acting both lender side and creditor side and across a wide range of industry sectors, including retail, manufacturing, financial services, real estate, hospitality and leisure, shipping, and natural resources.

In 2018, Faye was pleased to be recommended for corporate restructuring in the ‘ Legal 500: Hong Kong Restructuring and Insolvency’ publication. 

She also has strong in-house legal experience, having been seconded as Regional Legal Counsel to a major international oil and gas company in Singapore. In this role, she provided comprehensive legal and strategic advice on a broad range of commercial matters to the business and senior leadership teams across South-East Asia.  

Faye's unique background and depth of experience place her in a prime position to assist clients with a broad range of corporate and commercial matters, particularly those with an international element or involving cross-border legal issues.

Faye’s areas of expertise include the following:

  • Creditor representation in restructurings and insolvencies
  • Priority, validity, and enforcement of security
  • Contingency planning for lenders and debtors
  • Debt refinancings
  • Distressed business and asset sales
  • Formal insolvency procedures
  • Contentious insolvency
  • Directors duties and pre-insolvency advice
  • Cross-border insolvency issues

Faye divides her time between her home in Vancouver (where she lives with her husband and young son) and London. She is admitted to practice as a solicitor in England & Wales, Hong Kong and Canada (Ontario).
