Freeths strengthens insolvency offering

Freeths has bolstered its Restructuring & Insolvency Team in Sheffield with the appointment of Senior Associate Isobel Callaghan from Lupton Fawcett.

Isobel has joined the growing insolvency and restructuring practice in the city, working in the wider team of five fee-earners, alongside Partner and Head of Department, Oliver Jackson.

She has over nine years’ experience in dealing with both contentious and non-contentious insolvency matters. She works closely with insolvency practitioners, directors and owners of businesses, accountants and individuals in all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency law.

Isobel provides commercial and practical advice to clients including assisting insolvency practitioners in pursuing claims arising from insolvency estates and the merits of those claims.

Isobel is very well regarded in the local market and is an experienced insolvency lawyer. She advises on corporate insolvencies (including administrations, liquidations and CVAs) and complex bankruptcy matters, including dealing with potential claims for preferences and transactions at undervalue and misfeasance actions.

John May, Managing Partner for Yorkshire and the North West, said: “We are delighted to welcome Isobel to the firm. Isobel brings with her a wealth of experience to expand the team’s already extensive restructuring and insolvency capability in Yorkshire, developed by Oliver Jackson.

“Isobel is part of our commitment to recruit and retain the highest calibre lawyers in the city and, as a result, the team continues to see fantastic growth, providing first class advice to our impressive range of clients. We know Isobel will be a valuable resource for our clients.”

Isobel added: “I’m delighted to have joined the Restructuring and Insolvency Team at Freeths in Sheffield. This is an exciting opportunity for me and I’m thrilled to have joined such a great firm and I look forward to contributing to the firms continued growth and success in Sheffield and Yorkshire.”
