Due to our commitment to ongoing growth and increased client demand, our busy Manchester team is on the lookout for an additional senior or principal associate with at least 6 years’ pqe. This role will be reporting to Sarah Teal who represents banks, asset based lenders and other financiers, restructuring and turnaround professionals, directors and management teams and advises on all issues arising in financially stressed situations.
