‘A market leader in the region’, Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP fields ‘an intelligent, supportive and proactive team’ that is ‘never afraid to seek out complex solutions’. The ‘highly experienced’ Paul Dutton leads the practice and attracts praise for his ‘very practical approach’; Dutton’s recent highlights include advising Joseph Rhodes Group on a restructuring and the placement of part of the group into administration, and acting for Cleveland Tontine on the accelerated sale of a hotel and restaurant business. In another key mandate, Dutton acted alongside Birmingham-based Andrew Jordan for Grant Thornton as administrators of St John’s on the Hill School, which involved a pre-packaged administration sale. HSBC, Clydesdale Bank, Tesco Bank, Santander and PWC are also noteworthy clients. Consultant Peter Cranston specialises in non-contentious matters and Leeds-based senior associate Andrew Black leads the group’s work on investigatory, contentious and personal insolvency issues. Lemi McAuley and Victoria Procter (both senior associates in Leeds) focus on insolvency procedures and real estate finance restructurings, respectively.
