Our People

Lines Henry have a wealth of talent and experience in all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency. Come meet the team....

Neil Henry MIPA, FABRP


I am a Director of Lines Henry and a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner. I believe my main strength is my ability to focus on the important issues surrounding a particular problem. I try to give clear advice. This ability has come from the years of experience gained from working in both small and large professional practices, running my own business, and helping to resolve a variety of problems.

Outside of work I spend a lot of time trying to get my children to eat less junk. I also spend a lot of time with my head in my hands at Bolton Wanderers football matches.

Mike Simister LLB, MIPA


I have been involved in Insolvency since 1987 after qualifying as a Solicitor. I spent the first part of my career advising Insolvency Practitioners and corporate clients on all aspects of insolvency and business recovery. I qualified as an Insolvency Practitioner in 2001 and specialise in dealing with insolvent businesses, including corporate work, partnerships and sole traders

Lisa McAllister



I have been with Lines Henry since its early days. I obtained my Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency in 2000.  I manage all the insolvency solutions offered and deal personally with more complex cases. I manage the team of Administrators ensuring all cases are handled to the high standards for which we are known.  Over the last couple of years, I have enjoyed venturing into the Business Development side of the business by launching our satellite offices in Wigan and Littleborough, Rochdale.

Outside of work unlike most of my colleague’s I don’t try my best to keep fit nor do I attempt to eat more healthily.  My life outside of work is taken up by my family, friends and business contacts (who I now consider most of them to be friends).  Luckily I have a very understanding husband (and daughter) who do understand that networking really is networking and not an excuse for a jolly!!

Kirsty Jones BA, CPI


I joined Lines Henry Ltd in 2004 and obtained a Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency in 2007. I have a BA Honors degree in Primary Education and Mathematics with QTS.  I conduct the day to day handling of various insolvency cases from sign up to dissolution. The majority of these cases are Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidations and Members’ Voluntary Liquidations but I also have a wealth of knowledge and experience dealing with Administrations.

I love spending time and having fun with my two children and do not work Mondays to maximize this. I enjoy outdoor activities, especially being at the stables and riding my horse.

Rob Jones

Senior Insolvency Administrator

I joined Lines Henry in 2007 as a case administrator. Since this time I have dealt with various aspects of both corporate and personal insolvency, from chairing Members Voluntary Liquidation Skype meetings to preparing Individual Voluntary Arrangement Proposals. I also attend various networking events on behalf of Lines Henry and continue to build relationships with accountants from the Wirral and Liverpool area, which is where I am from.

Outside of work my interests are keeping fit, watching 80s films, eating food which is bad for you and watching Liverpool F.C. I also have a young daughter who continues to keep me on my toes.

Lisa Edwards

Senior Insolvency Administrator

I started my Insolvency career at Lines Henry back in 1998 and after re-joining the team in May 2017, I feel like I have come home. I have over 9 years’ experience since returning to the profession after taking a career break to be at home with my children. I obtained my Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency in 2011. I have mainly dealt with corporate insolvency cases, but also have a vast experience of more complex bankruptcy cases and other personal debt solutions.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my two children and family, usually dragging them around a museum or two. I also love my garden, which resembles a jungle at times, but I love growing my own vegetables and enjoy relaxing outside after a day at the office.

Pawel Borczewski

Insolvency Administrator

I have joined the team at Lines Henry Limited in early 2017. My experience comes from working on personal insolvency cases, mainly bankruptcies, as well as IVAs and trust deeds to a lower extent. I have been developing my knowledge of corporate insolvency and welcome new challenges that lie ahead.

On a personal note, I enjoy playing basketball, following various tech news and like to relax with my wife and cat while watching a good movie or TV series

Janette Cotton

Accounts Manager

I joined Lines Henry Limited in 2005 as accounts manager. I have over 20 years previous experience in this role which includes the management of all client accounts together with that of Lines Henry. I also oversees Health & Safety issues and general office maintenance.

Despite my colleagues’ assertions that I come from outer space, I like the simple things in life.  I love sitting out in my garden, walking my dog and spending time with my family.  I do have a tendency to want everything to be just so, which means I spend an awful lot of time with an antiseptic wipe in one hand and a ruler in the other.

Susan McCartney

Accounts Assistant

I joined Lines Henry Limited in 2010 as an assistant to the accounts manager with the everyday financial duties. I also work closely with the case administrators assisting them throughout the administration of all cases on the financial aspect of each file.

I don’t really have any hobbies but I do enjoy swimming and socialising.  Some would say I spend an awful lot of my time terrorising my co-workers (and delivery men) but I have to practice my pulling skills somewhere!!  Other than that you will find me donning my apron and marigolds cleaning my newly renovated apartment, whether it needs cleaning or not.

Bob Cleary

Marketing Excecutive

I look after the marketing activities, working proactively to introduce Lines Henry to the ever-growing number of independent accountants, contractor accountants and businesses that would benefit from the services offered by us.

Outside of work, I actually like gardening (especially growing the unusual).  I enjoyed a bumper crop of Figs this year with which I made quite a few jars of Chutney and Jam.  Also the Quince has produced some fruit but sadly, nothing on the Blackberry, Gooseberry or Pomegranate – and to cap it all, the squirrels got to all the Hazelnuts before they have chance to develop.  When not in the garden I like to spend time with my Grandchildren, that is when I am not exercising my DIY skills at my son’s house.
