About Us

We are a firm of specialist insolvency and restructuring lawyers - based in London, East Anglia (Norwich) and South of England (Portsmouth) but work with clients based across the United Kingdom and the world.

As a boutique legal practice we aim to provide a true ‘partner led’ service via our experienced lawyers who are all experts in their fields. We understand the need to provide our clients with high quality, innovative advice, which is efficient and provides value for money.

Where Isadore Goldman is different is that we recognise that each case we handle is always about you, the client. Whatever type of client you are we recognise the importance of understanding your concerns, your budget, the need for you to be clearly and fully advised, and perhaps most importantly your expectations of a result.

Whilst we may be the adviser, we recognise the outcome of the case and its importance to you is paramount.

Our People

Our Mission and Values

We believe in creating a better present and future for our clients and our people.

We aspire to:

  • have an unrivalled reputation for client service and expertise in insolvency and restructuring.
  • be recognised within the legal profession as a firm with ‘the very best’ in terms of positive culture, leadership, supervision, career progression, support, training, rewards and resources.

To achieve this, we invest in our people to ensure that they are all experts in what they do, meaning our clients receive the very best in terms of service and expertise.

Our four key values are as follows:

  1. Trust - Trust in our advice given to clients, our service to clients and third parties, and in each other. Clients trust us to provide the very best in terms of solutions and service.
  2. Expertise - We welcome, promote and nurture knowledge, skills and experience to maintain our position as one of the UK’s leading insolvency and restructuring firms. There are very few firms that can match the level of expertise offered across our offices.
  3. Commerciality - Coupled with legal expertise, our advice is sensible, pragmatic, informed and grounded in commercial reality. Our advice will always be given within the constraints of the law but without forgetting that every case has a commercial element too.
  4. Creativity – We aim to offer original and innovative solutions for clients and to communicate those clearly. Every case is different and often requires a novel solution which we aim to provide.

Our Long History

Isadore Goldman was founded by Mr Isadore Goldman in 1885. Practicing initially in family law, Mr Goldman became particularly known for his insolvency and bankruptcy expertise – a tradition that was carried on by his son, Joe, and his grandson, Alfred, well into the 1970s. Alfred Goldman complimented this with a successful bank recovery practice (when the firm was sometimes referred to as the “grim reaper”) winning the loyalty of a large national clearing bank that continues to this day.

Now a modern commercial practice, Isadore Goldman continues to nurture its pedigree in personal insolvency and bank recovery along with the associated practice areas of corporate insolvency, restructuring, asset recovery and services to directors, creditors and debtors. In recent years it has recruited a number of lawyers who are experts in these fields.

Consistently punching above its weight, Isadore Goldman is proud of its niche status and its clients value its highly personal approach and first class service.
