Begbies Traynor appointed administrators for Manchester law firm

Administrators from Begbies Traynor have been appointed at Carter Moore, the Manchester law firm.

Dean Watson and Jason Greenhalgh of Begbies Traynor were appointed Joint Administrators of Carter Moore Solicitors Limited on 24th January, after the law firm ceased trading and all eleven members of staff were made redundant.

The firm was founded in 2003 by Jeremy Moore and Mark Carter. It specialised in criminal defence, serious fraud and personal injury work.

Dean Watson, partner at Begbies Traynor, said:

“Law firms operating in the regional legal market, particularly those in personal injury or criminal practice, continue to face business challenges. Carter Moore, despite employing talented staff and winning several high profile cases for clients are no different from many other firms who are teetering on the brink of survival.

“Law firms have a particular responsibility to their existing clients and creditors under strict rules laid down by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). In this case the directors are complying and they remain in dialogue with the SRA as our team at Begbies Traynor progresses our work. We will update creditors on proceedings.”
