Within: Insolvency and corporate recovery

DWF's team is noted for its ‘pragmatic and well-thought-through’ advice, and for its expertise in administrations involving substantial property assets, in addition to complex contentious insolvency instructions. Highlights included advising NMS Projects on the acquisition of the business and assets of Qualitycourse Ltd. Barclays Bank Restructuring and Recoveries Panel, Begbies Traynor, Ernst & Young and BDO are also clients. Liverpool-based Katharine Lawrenson is the firm’s national head of personal insolvency and co-heads the restructuring team with Manchester-based director Julie Agnew, who handles a range of contentious and non-contentious insolvency work. Other key figures include senior associate Alicia Renshaw, who specialises in distressed property-related mandates, and associate Amy Crighton. Sean McGrath left the firm in January 2018.
