Lisa McAllister

Director

One of Lines Henry’s trio of Directors, Lisa has over 20 years of extensive experience in the industry. Lisa guides Lines Henry’s business development and helps manage the team.

Lisa gets a great deal of enjoyment in her specialisation helping SME’s and also helping individuals who find themselves in financial difficulties. Having seen the relief on the faces of the people she helps as “The weight of the world is lifted”, she takes great pleasure in providing the help and advice which sees them through their worries and out at the other side.

Whilst Lisa understands why people may have a poor view of the work insolvency practitioners, she takes issue with people who ignore the advice of the experts in favour of listening to the unqualified opinions of people in their local pub. If only they’d pick up the phone to the professionals when times get tough, they’d soon find those troubles would be well on their way to being dealt with. The earlier Lines Henry becomes involved, the more can be done.

Lisa imagines that her IP superpower is tolerance. Even for the people who don’t listen to the advice of the qualified and experienced.

At home, Lisa enjoys settling down with a good book, spending time with her family and visiting friends. She has a King Charles Spaniel named Titch, who she describes as being the ‘apple of her eye’.

We pressed Lisa for a favourite quote, she gave us three; “No s**t Sherlock”, “What is the worst someone can say?” & “Go stand in a corner and think about what you have done”. We’re assured that only one of those gets used at work.
