Our client is a well rated Legal 500 firm with a sizeable Corporate Recovery practice and solid market presence in Leeds in the mid-market. Being part of a firm which has specialist teams in Corporate, Banking, Debt, and Real Estate, this Corporate Recovery and Insolvency team has a great platform and the brand is particularly visible in the Yorkshire business community because of the effort it makes to be involved in the region and it's commitment to PR and marketing to push its profile and reputation. Long has this firm been a very popular option for candidates leaving the larger national firms, and also for those stepping up from regional practice for a true commercial brand, and in recent years they've evolved into being something of an 'employer of choice' in Leeds.

They are looking to recruit into their team at Legal Director level. You will be required to handle a mix of non-contentious and contentious corporate and personal insolvency work, though the exact composition can be tailored to the individuals leanings to some degree. Your work will include acting for insolvency practitioners in respect of their appointment as administrators/liquidators/administrative receivers/trustee in bankruptcy; assisting clients in the disposal of company assets and carrying out investigations in respect of directors' conduct and antecedent transactions; acting for LPA Receivers; defending director disqualification proceedings - a really broad exposure to the whole range of corporate recovery and insolvency.

This department works with private equity providers as well as private individuals, directors, shareholders and creditors, banks, asset-based lenders and other financial stakeholders, and so you can expect a high level of client contact from the outset.

Suitable candidates will have had at least 4 years exposure to Corporate Recovery, ideally gained with a national firm or recognised regional commercial practice. Having a good level of self confidence is key given the level of client contact expected. This is a firm which is doing well and has real market momentum despite challenging market conditions and are working hard at nurturing a positive culture.

A fantastic opportunity for a corporate recovery and insolvency specialist who wants to be in a firm where being an individual is valued and encouraged.

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.

Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
