Insolvency & Restructuring Lawyer - Leeds

I'm guessing if you are reading this then you are an insolvency lawyer - at least I hope so. At least from my side that is the best start possible.

If you are already based in Leeds then chances are you work for a comparable or perhaps even competitor firm. So why then should you read on?

As ever that is a deep personal question which only you can answer and hopefully some of the features of the role outlined below will tick some of your boxes. If not, then this isn't for you. If it ticks some but not all, lets at least have a conversation. A job ad can only do so much and is limited by my own creativity and not all the positives (and also any trade offs) can be fully conveyed.

So what of the firm and the work? Well, pretty good depending on what you want out of your next move. An international firm (so good profile of cross border work) with a very strong reputation in insolvency and restructuring. So the work will be of a high quality. 

Not exclusively but the firm generate a lot of work through banks and the like so perhaps not as much director driven work and so more strategic turnaround with financial stakeholders in mind but still, high quality work.

A team that is bright, creative and solutions orientated (finding ways and means to restructure, rescue and often avoid insolvency altogether). As such you will be tasked with analysing and dealing with complex information and thinking beyond the obvious (and easiest) solution.

Will it be 9-5? No. Its a big firm and some big transactions. Equally they pay well so you will work hard. That said, the firm have proven themselves at working flexibly which has made it a great place to work without feeling like it is taking over your life.

So what do they need? Well, the role sits at around 1-4 years PQE and so some level of good insolvency restructuring experience whether in a boutique practice or something from the nationals upwards is preferred. It may well be a stretch for them to consider an NQ or recently qualified solicitor but never say never. If the experience is high quality then there is an openness to talk.

The role itself will have a leaning towards the transactional side but if your experience has been a combination of contentious and non-contentious then, again, we are interested in speaking with you.

If you are an insolvency lawyer considering a move and would like to talk further then contact Paul Warburton for a confidential discussion or send your CV to us for consideration.
