The successful candidate will be expected to advise insolvency practitioners from small independents to national practices on all aspects of insolvency covering a wide variety of industry sectors. This will include acting for banks and other lenders where you will be called to advise on their security arrangements and on strengthening their position.
The role will involve protecting businesses and their key personnel against the potential negative consequences of an investigation or prosecution whether financial, reputational or personal. You should have experience of advising directors of their duties and obligations prior to any formal insolvency then guiding these clients through the insolvency process.
On occasion you will be required to act for individuals buying a business and / or assets out of insolvency and to handle large / complex property portfolio disposals for administrators and LPA receivers.
As this is a progressive role you will be expected to maintain and grow your own caseload subject to an appropriate level supervision by the Department Head and keep up to date with changes and developments in insolvency law.
You will have excellent technical ability and a client/outcome focussed approach. Realistically having 3-5 years PQE or more, you will be expected to manage your own caseload with assistance and support from other members of the team, although all levels of experience will be considered. You will also be expected to participate in marketing activities.
Please get in touch ASAP.
