Former Deloitte and RSM expert Rob Armstrong has joined Duff & Phelps as a Managing Director in the firm’s Global Restructuring Advisory practice. With expertise in insolvency litigation, misfeasance and asset recovery, Armstrong brings more than 15 years of experience to the role.

Commenting on his new challenge, Armstrong said, he was primarily attracted to Duff & Phelps by its strong presence in the US, the Caribbean, and its growing footprint across Europe and Asia. Alongside its international authority, he also stated that being able to draw on other service lines, such as corporate investigations and risk mitigation through Kroll, means he would be able to draw on experts across multiple geographies and skill sets to deliver effective solutions to clients.

"Joining Duff & Phelps is an exciting opportunity for me to be part of an international organisation that will enable me to establish and build a multi-jurisdictional contentious insolvency practice,” Armstrong added.

This is an important strategic step for the business, and his knowledge and experience will be invaluable to the global restructuring team and the broader business.”
