Vinden makes Leonard Curtis move

Peter Vinden has joined the insolvency advice firm’s restructuring and turnaround division as a director.

He brings with him three decades of construction dispute resolution expertise to ramp up their distress advisory offering, which is aimed at contractors and sub-contractors.

Earlier this year he became a non-exec director at Manchester-based claims consultant Decipher, a DeSimone company.

Vinden will join the specialist property and construction team at Leonard Curtis, led by directors and insolvency practitioners Andrew Knowles, Phil Deyes, Nick Myers, and Alex Cadwallader.

Qualified as a chartered quantity surveyor, arbitrator, adjudicator, and mediator, he founded The Vinden Partnership 30 years ago.

Under his guidance, TVP offered solutions to construction-related problems, advising clients involved in the holding and development of land and property assets and dispute resolution.

These solutions included a range of quantity surveying, project management, building surveying, CDM coordination, party wall, and dispute management services, as well as property insurance.

Among the groups he has worked for are the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, and The London Court of International Arbitration.

Vinden said: “Lack of resolution of commercial disputes piles further pressure on vulnerable businesses in the contractor supply chain and has often pushed them into financial distress.

“The plan at Leonard Curtis is to provide effective early interventions for these businesses with dispute resolution, restructuring, and funding advice at just the right time.

“I am delighted to be joining a great business that I have worked with for more than 25 years.”

Chief executive Dan Booth added: “Peter is already bringing live construction cases to us based on his enviable reputation in this sector and is committed to collaborative working for the best results. His no-nonsense, straight-talking approach aligns perfectly with our own.

“We share the same concern for spotting the warning signs early while options for dispute resolution and recovery still exist in a sector plagued with setbacks in recent times. His insight will prove invaluable in what we’re trying to achieve for our clients and position us as the go-to experts in this market.”
