Jamie McIntosh - Addleshaw Goddard

Within: Insolvency and corporate recovery

Addleshaw Goddard fields 'an impressive level of resource' in Scotland. Led by Jamie McIntosh, who 'offers wise counsel in difficult and complex situations', the group provides 'authoritative and expert support' on management and bank-led turnarounds and corporate restructurings, distressed real estate, debt portfolio transactions, and various other matters. The firm has built upon its merger with HBJ Gateley in 2017 by hiring associate Craig Falconer to its Aberdeen office, and also by winning work from clients such as HSBC, Sainsburys Bank and Close Brothers. McIntosh and Lynsey Walker represented Clipper Holdings in the high-profile case of Shear v Clipper Holdings; the matter concerned whether or not the client had title to enforce a security, following assignation of the security (as part of a portfolio transfer) from Allied Irish Bank. In another notable matter, Tim Cooper and managing associate Jamie Nellany are acting for Moorfields Advisory Limited as the administrators of three Jersey-registered SPV shopping centre companies. A separate team led by Spiers is advising the same client on the administration of the AWG group of companies. Cerberus, Bibby Financial Services and Carval Investors are among other clients. Addi Spiers is 'well-liked and well-respected by clients, particularly banks and acquirers of debt portfolios'.
