Weightmans insolvency team welcomes new hire as department grows into national offering

The Weightmans Restructuring and Insolvency team has welcomed Partner and corporate insolvency expert James Moore as team achieves record growth.

James, formally of Squire Patton Boggs, is based in the firm’s Leeds office, offering support to both national and international clients. He has a wealth of experience acting for insolvency practitioners, corporate debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, distressed companies, LPA and Fixed Charge Receivers, banks, investors and directors in relation to insolvency and restructuring related work on both a contentious and non-contentious basis. He is particularly well regarded in the sports and financial services sectors for his almost unrivalled experience of insolvency related work in these areas.

He joins a Weightmans team that advise organisations across a variety of sectors; including construction, retail & leisure, and local government on all aspects of personal and corporate insolvency. The team was boosted significantly by Partner Natasha Atkinson’s arrival in May 2018, with major growth coming from the firm’s strong reputation for offshore investigative work.

Natasha said:

“Insolvency or business restructuring involves a great deal of strategic planning, stakeholder management and a deep understanding of industry and economic trends – which means wide-ranging professional support is crucial.

“We are committed to recruiting the very best to meet the needs of our clients. James is an excellent lawyer and we are thrilled to have him join us at such an exciting time for the team – he has a vast amount of experience of dealing with complex financial issues and will ensure we are able to offer a truly comprehensive service to clients across the UK.”

James added:

“Weightmans has a fantastic reputation for delivering a comprehensive restructuring service, designed to help clients make the best of any situation.

“I am proud to work for a firm which shares this commitment to real solutions-driven service and I look forward to working closely with colleagues from across the firm to continue to grow our insolvency and restructuring offering.”
