Meet the Team: Steve Baggett

09 July 2021

Steve joined the team in February 2020 having previously worked in legal accounts for over 15 years. Not many of you will have had the pleasure of meeting him yet though as the pandemic has put that on hold.

Steve has already shown himself to be a real asset to the team, demonstrating a natural flare for insolvency casework and flying through his introductory insolvency courses and associated tests.


What is your role at RJS?

I am an Insolvency Administrator although I am still very much in the learning stage of my insolvency career having had no prior experience in such a role, with my previous experience being in the legal profession. I have a small case load at present which is made up entirely of corporate insolvency appointments.

I will be undertaking formal insolvency qualifications shortly and look forward to that challenge.


What do you do in your spare time?

I enjoy spending time with my family, eating out, socialising with friends, walking on the moors and walking our dog on the beach. Living in the South West, we are very fortunate to have such a varied landscape on our doorstep. 

I have a stepdaughter who I spend a lot of time with doing exciting activities such as rock climbing and tree surfing and I am also expecting a new baby so will have my hands full very soon! In my own spare time, I try and get to the gym 2 or 3 times a week.

Why RJS?

When I was offered a position at Richard J Smith & Co I felt extremely privileged as the firm has been established for many years and is held in high regard by those in the insolvency community, local solicitors, accountants and most importantly, by the clients. Richard J Smith & Co as a firm may be small in size, but is huge in experience, knowledge and respect.

Something that people might not know about you?

I was once nominated for “Apprentice of the Year”. I didn’t win though…

Favourite case/work story?

I have had my own caseload as an Administrator for about a year so only have a handful of cases to reflect upon. I will always remember my first case which was a creditors voluntary liquidation of a subsidiary that formed part of a larger overall insolvency procedure of the parent company which was ultimately dealt with by pre-packaged Administration. Certainly a lot to learn in a very short space of time!

What would your last meal be?

Chicken Rogan Josh from my local Indian restaurant.
