Eileen Margaret Maclean


Eileen Maclean is a licensed insolvency practitioner with nearly 30 yearsâ?? experience of all aspects of personal and corporate insolvency in Scotland.  Nine of those years were spent with EY in Edinburgh, where she passed her Joint Insolvency Exam, and commenced her MBA. 

Spotting an opportunity in the market, Eileen has been providing bespoke support services to the insolvency profession since 1999, including outsourcing and technical support, compliance reviews and extensive training programmes. She is recognised as the foremost trainer of Scottish insolvency throughout the UK, and for her thought leadership across the profession. 

Eileen specialises in complex issues and dispute resolution, where she combines detailed knowledge of the law with a pragmatic approach to get proven results for clients. She excels in compliance and practical advice and in the words of a peer, â??what she doesnâ??t know about insolvency isnâ??t worth knowingâ?.  

Eileen represented Scotland on R3â??s National Council for six years. She continues to provide valuable input into government consultations and SIPs as an active member of the R3 Scottish Technical Committee.
