FRP Advisory appoints new partner in Birmingham office

Business advisory firm FRP Advisory has strengthened its team in the Midlands with the promotion to partner of Arvindar Singh-Sall, who is based in the firm’s Birmingham office.

FRP Advisory Midlands team now comprises 31 staff, including six partners and five directors spread across offices in Birmingham and Leicester covering the West Midlands and East Midlands.
Singh-Sall has extensive experience in business and corporate restructuring and re-financing across a broad range of sectors, and has become a key advisor to corporate stakeholders, providing advisory and insolvency services to companies at times of financial distress and critical change to their businesses. Singh-Sall has built a leading reputation across the Midlands and the wider country in addressing the needs of the UK’s Asian-owned businesses and related lending communities, many of which often lie outside the mainstream lending market.
Singh-Sall is a licensed insolvency practitioner and qualified accountant with 25 years of experience advising and managing business and corporate restructurings. She joined FRP Advisory as director in 2014 and has delivered a number of assignments for various stakeholders enabling turnaround and restructuring solutions on behalf of both management and lenders which include corporate rescue and insolvency processes. She has particular expertise advising companies with underlying property assets in the hotel, leisure, healthcare and care home sectors often trading such businesses to maximise returns for stakeholders.
Singh-Sall says: “I am delighted to have become a partner in such a forward-looking and dynamic organisation. At FRP Advisory we have strong ambitions for continuing expansion in Birmingham and across the firm, and are proud of our proven track record of providing exemplar y solutions to clients in the mid-market.
FRP Advisory has advised and assisted businesses within the Anglo-Asian communities both in the Midlands and across the country, but there is more we can do. I relish the challenges posed that are sometimes peculiar to family-owned firms within Anglo-Asian communities; where relationships between lenders and management can be complicated and challenging due to wider cultural community ties and additional considerations. By combining my cultural capital to the experience I and my partners and directors bring from our many years in business insolvency and restructuring, we can often yield more productive commercial solutions than may be first apparent for businesses in financial distress within this community whilst remaining sensitive to concerns of all stakeholders.”
Gerald Smith partner at FRP Advisory, says: “Arvindar’s welcome promotion comes as a response to increased demand for FRP Advisory’s skills and services in Birmingham and the wider Midlands business community. FRP Advisory is the only firm with four advisory, restructuring and recovery partners in Birmingham. With Arvindar as partner we continue with our ethos of delivering hands-on, senior led advice to businesses at times of critical change.
“In Arvindar we are privileged to have an extremely experienced practitioner whose strong relationships across both the regional business, advisory and lending community have led to her insolvency and restructuring skills being highly sought-after. In addition to her work advising SMEs, Arvindar has been exceptionally active in the debtor led and non-clearing banking markets. Being tri-lingual in English, Punjabi and Hindi gives Arvindar and our team a real edge in getting to the heart of some of the commercial challenges when dealing with business across key sections of the multi-cultural Anglo-Asian communities that exist both Birmingham, the wider West and East Midlands and other large metropolitan areas. These connections across the UK fit with FRP Advisory’s existing network of relationships spread over multiple offices.”
