This global law firm is looking to recruit a Solicitor to join the Restructuring team based in Glasgow. Applicants will ideally be newly or recently qualified (NQ-2 years) including those who are due to qualify in 2022.
This market-leading Restructuring team is part of the Banking and Finance group and advises on all aspects of restructuring and insolvency. They act for all major clearing banks and advise those banks as well as non-bank lenders, funds, turnaround and insolvency practitioners, company directors, shareholders and other stakeholders on strategies for company recovery and turnaround.
The team is involved in complex, high value restructurings at an early stage in the financial decline curve, with the aim of providing innovative solutions which improve returns to stakeholders, minimise risk and, in many cases, avoid an insolvency process altogether. They have a reputation for the contentious practice too, having been instructed on a number of high profile assignments, where they investigate causes of company failure and pursue claims against those responsible. Members of the team are recognised specialists for dealing with assignments in the professional practices, charity and construction sectors having worked on a number of high profile engagements.
The team is also regularly engaged in the sale and purchase of loan portfolios in the UK and Europe, as well as on other large-scale due diligence and remediation exercises.
Operating across the UK and beyond, the team has ten partners and a team of thirty lawyers making it one of the largest teams of any national practice.
The successful candidate will ideally have gained experience in corporate, restructuring or finance in a mid to large commercial practice. Candidates must be commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development. They will be a team player with a strong client-focussed approach. They will also have a good academic background and excellent communication and organisational skills.
