RESTRUCTURING LAWYER - LEEDS

Our client is a gobal brand, and their restructuring team in Leeds saw massive growth in the last 12 months and so is wanting to recruit, ideally at the 3-6yrPQE level though there is some flexibility around this.

Whilst traditionally there has been a very clear divide between contentious insolvency and non-contentious restructuring, market shift is leading our client's services. On all the major bank panels, they are increasingly advising on restructuring matters which are contentious and involving forensic analysis and which therefore require a hybrid of competence spanning restructuring and also the ability to strategise and advise in contentious scenarios. The successful applicant will thus be exposed to a range of high quality work including advising financial institutions, turnaround and insolvency practitioners, company directors, shareholders and stakeholders on strategies for restructuring and prospectively litigation.

Suitable candidates will have gained restructuring experience from a City, national or large regional practice and be looking for the next challenge in their career. Strong candidates will have good technical and organisational skills and pay close attention to detail as well as the ability to work in direct support of other more senior solicitors and with supervision over more junior colleagues. Whilst this a progressive and innovative firm it is also a hardworking and pragmatic team and so sharing that work ethic and commitment to client-care is essential.

A very competitive remuneration package is offered to attract the best lawyers in the market and those out of London.



Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
