Freeths LLP has a well-established reputation for contentious insolvency and asset recovery work led by Mike Gilmour, who has many year of experience handling litigation relating to corporate failures and bankruptcy. The ‘technically excellent, commercially savvy and cost-effective‘ practice received a significant boost in August 2020 with the arrival of John Jeffreys, formerly of DLA Piper; he is tasked with overseeing the firm’s expansion into the non-contentious front, leveraging his renowned expertise in transactional, restructuring, accelerated M&A, formal insolvency procedure and distressed property affairs.
