Job Details

Insolvency Solicitor - Senior Associate/Partner - Leeds or Sheffield

Our client is a well established Yorkshire firm, enjoying a decent ranking in Legal 500, and is a recognised brand across the region by virtue of its three office locations. Clients include a broad range of large businesses with UK wide operations, as well as local SME/OMB's in Yorkshire so they have a healthy platform from which to grow. They have space in their offices to expand further and are committed to sustained growth and maintaining their momentum in the market.

They are looking to recruit into the Insolvency team at Senior Associate/Partner level and this is very much a strategic hire. You will be coming from a recognised commercial practice or niche insolvency team, and will have a mixed skills base in both contentious and non-contentious insolvency work. Whilst a following is not an prerequisite, a good contact base and footprint in the insolvency space is required.

Suitable candidates may be an existing Partner wanting a lateral move for a fresh challenge, or prospectively an experienced non-partner lawyer who is wanting that step up in terms of profile and standing. This role carries a lot of profile and a high level of autonomy in the firm, as you will be the the lead lawyer for the Insolvency and Corporate Recovery offering. Technically you'll be expected to be proficient in a broad range of traditional insolvency work with 7yrsPQE+. As important as your technical confidence is your ability and willingness to take a lead in marketing and profile raising in Yorkshire working your own professional network and also plugging into this firms contacts list and working closely with colleagues in other commercial disciplines. (Senior lawyers who'd perhaps hope to bring other fee earners with them will definitely be of interest.)

This represents a unique opportunity for an Insolvency Solicitor looking for a senior opportunity at Partner level and/or a defined route to partnership. With a fully engaged partner group supporting this appointment, you will be joining a firm with a genuinely collegiate culture, and which welcomes new ideas and energy from employees at all levels. This firm is a bit different, and will present an attractive alternative to candidates who may be with larger brands which are loosing their regional appreciation and commitment as they get larger.

A fantastic opportunity for a proven Insolvency Solicitor who is looking for an ambitious regional firm with plenty of opportunity.

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.
